Re: AlphaZero No Castling Chess

As to whether players (both OTB and correspondence players) would prefer no castling or a missing pawn to compensate draw odds, my opinion is that most would accept no castling more readily than missing pawn. No castling requires the other side to attack, while missing pawn requires the superior si...

Re: Blackmageddon Openings released

Your openings do not respect their promises for Amoeba's testing :( . I do my testing with a 8 moves opening (same as stockfish) producing about 60-65% of draw. Unfortunately I have the same draw percentages with DrawKiller_big.pgn or Blackmageddon_5mvs_10k.pgn. Usually the elo difference measured ...

Re: AlphaZero No Castling Chess

Of course. In Armageddon, the draw-rate is 0%, too. But NBC is a subset of chess. Black not to castle is very "unnatural". In Blackmageddon, all castlings are allowed. So, it is quite normal chess. With white having one pawn less. Followed by 5 human opening-moves out of the Megabase. That is the re...

Re: AlphaZero No Castling Chess

In Standard Chess this difference is +52 Elo points in 400 games, significantly smaller than +69 of the NBC Chess. If one plays paired games, the correct pentanomial error margins are similar in NBC and Standard Chess. So, NBC has a better resolving power than the Standard Chess. And one can use un...

Re: FGRL - 16 Cores rating list with NN-Engines

Great job. Especially, because your test-settings are quite close to my NN-ratinglist (nearly same thinking-time, same openings(!)), but my hardware has only (around) 40% n/s compared to your hardware. So, it is perfect for a comparsion of the results of your and my testings! https://www.sp-cc.de/lc...

Re: AlphaZero No Castling Chess

P.S. Cann't wait to see Stefan Pohl's new work. After the weekend I will have the time to implement something for his Armageddon variant. My new openigns are a new variant of Armageddon and well be released soon (before X-mas). The work is almost done, I just have to write the documentation and des...

Re: AlphaZero No Castling Chess

I think that Kai meant that openings from normal chess are not appropriate for NBC chess, they need to have their own openings analyzed by engines that are aware of the rule. In my new openings (coming until X-mas), which are a new variant of Armageddon, Komodo analyzed all endposition of the openi...

Re: AlphaZero No Castling Chess

Thanks for opening suites too! These are from normal human and computer games? I guess the openings will be somewhat different if one side doesn't castle, maybe I will build with Lc0 and Komodo some short opening suites which are played for this variant. ? IM_4moves and SuperGM_4moves are filtered ...
