Re: Fide Should create a New Computer odds vs GM Championship

What odds would you use? Time? Moves? Material? A combination of 2 of them? All 3 of them? What engine(s) would be used? What hardware? To be honest, something like Xiphos running on a mediocre laptop would crush most GMs at normal chess, so I don't see the point in using something like Stockfish 10...

Thanks!
In a few weeks I will publish a new "official" version.
Does this mean we will see Andscacs 0.95 playing in the TCEC Premier Division?

Re: Komodo MCTS scales worse with TC than Komodo A/B?

Komodo 12.2 MCTS just hit the FastGM rating list at bullet time control - http://fastgm.de/60-0.60.html It places right between Ethereal 11.00 and Fire 7.1. On the complete list it ranks exactly one place above Komodo 9 :D TCEC Division 4 will be a good test of how it performs at long time control. ...

Re: Komodo MCTS and Komodo (Standard?) in CCCC current Blitz battle

I was in the Twitch chat this morning on CCC Blitz Battle and someone mentioned that although the Komodo version number still says 2142, it has in fact been updated to 2171 for Stage 2. This is great news as we’ll now get to see how the new full speed Komodo does against Stockfish, Houdini and LC0. ...

Re: Komodo TCEC is doing really well so far against Stockfish

There's an update from Larry from 2 weeks ago - http://talkchess.com/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=68626#p776469 I've also read in the TCEC chat that new compiles of Komodo are even fast still, and there's some other improvements that I'm not technical enough to understand. I think it's good that Komod...

Re: Xiphos 0.4 vs. Top Chess Engines

This is great. It shows that the 0.4 update has catapulted Xiphos to the Andscacs/Booot/Gull level. It should be looking to break into Division 1 in TCEC.

Re: Xiphos 0.4

Thanks Milos. I hope your prediction of improvement can be confirmed, it has been so often that self-play suggested too optimistic expectations. If you look at how different versions of Xiphos have climbed this ratings list - http://fastgm.de/60-0.60.html then it's fair to say that version 0.4 will...
