Re: Tuning again

Running games at fixed depth (especially so low like 8 plies) has some drawback, Eval tuning I strictly do at fixed depth.

Re: Tuning again

5 secs for a whole game? Never tried that :shock: This generation surely has a whole new elo explanation.

Tuning again

Joona post [ http://74.220.23.57/forum/viewtopic.php?t=40662 ] brings back sweet memories.

Re: Extraordinary performance of Strelka 5.

Hi, i watched many games against Houdini. Well, their play is very similar but evaluation is very different, i think some important changes have been made in Strelka 5.

Re: Interesting reflection on a past statement

For the first time in history a top engine programmer releases his sources and it becomes a model for a new generation of chess programmers. Good eval, good search and how to do things right from the very start. With such a model available it's only natural modern chess engines will produce similar...
