Without Slipper of course. Slipper too busy with watching Curling.

What about Skipper?
I heard rumours that it made great improvements.

Skipper is angry for all attention goes to Slipper lately. So he won't play too.

I was thinking about Snipper too today. Snipper is a Dutch word.

I think you can send HGM a message with the handle you want to use.

ScorpioMCTS with treeht=infinity will be there.

Post by Daniel Shawul » Sat Feb 17, 2018 3:19 pm

I want to measure the strength the pure mcts player where everything is stored in memory. Though this may not be possible depending on the the time control used for this tournament. I could use treeht=64/128 MB but then it would spawn search treads at the leaves and become much stronger.

If anybody is up for test games, let me know here so that i can test my setup before the tourney begins.
