A preliminary test shows that 149 is TROUNCING 125 10-0, LOL
TCEC Season 12 should have started tomorrow and 149 might have dominated its division, who knows.

10 games does not demonstrate much, even when totally lopsided.

But between the last two data points on the LCZero graph,

(6,375,342 games : 5079.58 Elo)
(6,185,326 games : 5012.99 Elo)

Shows that over the last 190,016 games LCZero has picked up 66.59 Elo.

Yes, these are self-play games which cause a bias.
Yes, there have been questions about the graph.

But It is clear that LCZero is making mighty gains.
I guess in a week LCZero would be formidable on a Titan V
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

Those sudden and mighty gains are the result of the fixed bug. The network is "re-learning" what it had lost.
