REBEL | ProDeo book available in Polyglot format

Post by Rebel » Sat Mar 05, 2016 9:03 am

The polyglot book format is the most wide spread format in use by chess engines. We converted the ancient (2000/1) REBEL (ProDeo) book to polyglot format. While old it is still a Noomen book and thus good. A 200 game match confirmed it. We pitched Stockfish 7 with the REBEL book against the book of 2 times YAT winner Andscacs and the result was convincing.

SF7 (ProDeo.bin) - SF7 (varied.bin) 111.5 - 88.5

Thanks, Ed.
The YAT page reads Andscacs used book Arena.
Then Andscacs plays with this Bin book, I guess with adapter polyglot ?.

Indeed, forgot to change the YAT page. Arena books gave trouble with the live support so Daniel moved to Polyglot.

Update

As second step we added the analysis work of Dann Corbit and Les Fernandez to the ProDeo.bin book. This has resulted in a Polyglot opening book with 112 million moves. This book did very well in the YAT-2 tournament.

Another 200 game match, now with the Noomen Corbit cocktail also ended positive.

SF7 (DC.bin) - SF7 (varied.bin) 109 - 91

Hello Ed, thank you for your hard work on this book.
How do I make sure that the engine is using the dc book instead of the main or tournament book? I extracted the dc book into the Pro Deo 2.0 book folder.Thanks,
Gerald

Hi Gerald, in ProDeo YAT everything is already pre-installed.

The Polyglot conversion is for the use of other engines.
