Re: WCCC 2019 Macau..

That is about the same as watching football on TV, and thinking you are a great sportsman just because the team you root for won. No, it's knowing that I'd play football better than all the guys on TV. Namely, using CFish with some decent book remotely I would defeat these guys, so the're not worth...

Re: WCCC 2019 Macau..

They invite and if few come, it isn’t there fault. It's their fault if they haven't figured out chess engine games can be played remotely.

Are you asking out of general curiosity or is there something specific you are interested in? Tom's hardware has some GPU stress tests. Depending on how good the...

Nose Breaker

I was just told that "Lomonosov" means "nose breaker". I have always admired that great work done on the Lomonosov 7-piece tablebases, and think this is a great name for them, although I know they were named for the university they were computed at.

Re: WCCC vs TCEC Chess Engine Competitions..

Way past time to get off the old anti-ACM bandwagon, Way past time to get off the old ICGA bandwagon also unless they reinvent themselves. Pretty sad comment. The main thrust of the ICCA (then ICGA) was to foster interest in computer chess. They STILL provide that service via the annual mind games ...

Re: Komodo MCTS

Hi Mark! Any plans to implement position- learning to komodo (MCTS)? Works fine for me in StockLearn, which derived from an idea of Kelly Kinyama, as far as I know, has something to do with kind of MCTS too. Marco Zerbinati (SugaR_MCTS) and Andrea Manzo (ShashChess and StockLearn) gave GPL- Code of...
