Playing transposition table moves in the Quiescence search

Recently I've found elo by probing the Transposition Table (TT) during the Quiescence Search (QS) in order to generate cutoffs. However, I am not currently making any use of the ttmove which can be found. Currently my QS only generates tactical moves -- no quiets what-so-ever, not even checks or eva...

Re: 90 threads now on CCC 3

Time and time again we have proven that engines still gain vast amounts of elo with core doubling, and even with going from N cores to 2N threads, as shown by Noobpwnftw using SF 192core vs SF 384 thread. The people who object to using these higher core counts have simply not taken the time to ensur...

Re: LC0 network 31740 vs Stockfish 10

I was demonstrating the absurdity of his test by being absurd. Why would anyone run such a test with Lc0 other then to mislead people and disparage Lc0 with such an obvious bias test. The tester claims to have vast knowledge on testing, but still posted this absurdity. From Lc0 http://blog.lczero.o...

For a guy who complained and complained to get the previous admin out off TCEC to run away with his GUI, you should not be talking like that.
The previous admin did not run off, but instead was removed. Try to keep up.

Re: what happened to scorpio NN in TCEC?

[...] constantly attacks scorpio with "crashes" [...] You've crashed out for every single season you have ever took place in. Maybe its time to fix some things? Pathetic little troll.

Re: what happened to scorpio NN in TCEC?

Whats more likely... 1) There is an issue with cute-chess that seemingly only impacts Scorpio 2) An engine which has crashed out in all recent seasons (and denied entrance for one as a result), which has recently had a NN and MCTS component strapped to it, might just happen to crash because there is...
