Re: Too much LCZero

Yeah can we get back to the Stockfish posts, we just don't have enough of them.. :) That's the second one secret about the A0- LC0- Hype at computerchess- fora: Some got bored of (computer)chess as it was and now are happy thinking there was something "really" new. As for the game (chess) itself, I...

Re: are there any tactical moves in this position ...

I think White is lost, if Black plays accurately. If that was the question? Also because there seems no alternative for playing Bxf6 and then White has no compensation whatsoever for the other weaknesses anymore. this is Kaissa's Multi PV verdict: r3r1k1/pppqbppp/2n2n2/4pPB1/3p3N/3P4/PPP1BPPP/R2Q1K...

Re: Komodo 11.3 released

Is default contempt of 16 adequate value against K11.2.2 in selfplay (assuming the latter use C=10) ? Based on the estimated elo diff. and the formula in readme the optimum value for this test is Contempt = 1. But of course that wouldn't be fair if you use 10 in 11.2.2.
