Re: Fire 021819 is surprisingly strong

I quite often wonder about the effects of small sample size and if they’re ever exaggerated. In TCEC Cup 2 (the old 43 core setup) Fire 011819 (which is only 1 month younger than the version you’re talking about) Played 8 games against Jonny 8.1. The score was +1=7-0 in favour of Fire. Hardly an ast...

Re: Fire 021819 is surprisingly strong

The current CCC filler games are played at short time control (1+1) which suits Fire and basically cripples Komodo. We all know Komodo is far stronger than Fire. Plus the version of Ethereal being used is 11.80 which is far from the current 11.99 (soon to be formally released when one more patch tak...

Re: Schooner Version 2.2 Release

Denis, although you have no interest in tournament play, would you be upset if TCEC or CCC downloaded Schooner from the website and used it in tournament play without consulting you?

Re: Schooner Version 2.2 Release

FastGM's 10+6 list says that Schooner 2.2 is now the 7th best AB engine out there. Better than Fizbo, Andscacs, Laser, Defenchess, Fritz and Shredder. 65 Elo improvement. Nice going :D It would be really good to see it particpating in TCEC and CCC, provided it can run on Linux and cope with big hard...

Re: Komodo 13.2 Release

I see that both versions of Komodo are competing in the TCEC Cup 4 with version 2418. How close is version 2418 to the official release of 13.2? Is it weaker, stronger, or the identical version?

Re: Why there is no interest in Computer with odds Vs Humans match?

Larry - In the matches the Komodo has played in the last 10 years, what hardware has it been running on? I'm just interested to know because I'm guessing that almost any chess engine from 2014 onward, running on a single core with no tablebases would still crush any human. Regarding the level of che...

Re: FGRL 10 min + 6 sec Rating list - Komodo 13.01 MCTS

FGRL Rating list - 10 minutes + 6 seconds Komodo 13.01 MCTS ( +53 to Komodo 12.3 MCTS) On the FastGM 60+0.6 list it only gained 8 Elo over Komdo 12.3 MCTS. When I saw that, I scoffed at MCTS and began to wonder what the fuss was about. But seeing this gain of 53 Elo completely changed my mind. It's...
