Any Upcoming Events that Wasp 3.02 will be playing in.

Post by AdminX » Sun Aug 12, 2018 9:14 am

Are there any Upcoming Events that Wasp 3.02 will be playing in. I felt somewhat robbed of the opportunity to witnessing it's true potential this TCEC and look forward to it's release. It's performance in TCEC Div 4 felt more like Wasp 3.5.

Hi Ted,

Chess.com is launching a new Computer Chess Championship series, including LC0 on a powerful GPU server.
You can learn more about it here: https://www.chess.com/news/view/announc ... ampionship

I've been trying to reach John Stanback to invite Wasp 3.2, but to no avail. His email address is not public.

I contacted Frank Quisinsky, who normally acts as liason for contacting John, and publishing Wasp releases...
but unfortunately he is sick in the hospital and can't help in that regard.
I certainly wish Frank a speedy recovery.

If anyone knows how to contact John, help would be greatly appreciated.

I replied to Norman's PM that I will submit Wasp 3.2 (or a newer version) for the upcoming chess.com tournament. This version is only about 20 Elo better than Wasp 3.0 in my testing on one core at ultra-blitz TC. I'm hoping to make more improvements before a public release. I think the main reason it did well in TCEC Season 13 as compared to Seasons 11 and 12 is that I fixed a bug and made a couple changes that had a big impact when using many threads but no impact for 1-4 threads. It's also possible that some recent changes to search extensions are more beneficial for long time control and/or more threads.

The interface for CCCC looks nice.
