Re: correspondence chess in the age of NNUE

Let's suppose that the rules of chess were changed in some way to eliminate draws while keeping the chances of White and Black fairly equal. What about my idea of starting with a countdown? Every time a player moves the countdown goes down by 1. If white manage to force a draw it counts as a win. I...

Re: Purpose of correspondence chess in modern era

Then years ago there was IECG, but that was discontinued, and then games were continued on this server; https://www.chess-server.net (did a quick search on computer play, without results, probably they still don't like the use of computers). Oh, they use computers, and they might actually use them ...

Re: chess.com personality bots research

Check out my old distilled nets (as small as 16x2) and small nets trained on bad gyal data. You can really turn the knob for nps or total nodes much more than on a big net. https://github.com/dkappe/leela-chess-weights/wiki/Distilled-Networks https://github.com/dkappe/leela-chess-weights/wiki/Mean-...

Re: chess.com personality bots research

I have yet to see any computer bot play anything like a human. Have you tried the ProDeo personalities? I think this engine is capable of creating bots that can beat the turing test, I remember making one that had 1.b3 as its favorite choice. The most human-like bots I've seen have been the Leela N...

Re: Alexa vs Google

Haha! Nice one. It felt like robots actually playing games unlike the other computer chess games I've been watching for decades. I also find interesting that it has nearly gotten 3 million views, making it the most watched chess game between engines, by a long shot, and the general public has produc...

Re: SFNNUE Fails!! In this Positions!!

And when we say best it means the shortest path to victory many times forced which becomes the longest if both side play the correct defense. There is nothing more to discuss here. But that's not the best definition of best. I'll agree to disagree, but if a move you make makes the opponent resign o...

Re: Queens Gambit

That works sometimes, but if the result of your play is a win/loss in every situation, your play isn't that good at all I disagree, I think someone could easily program a "Beth Harmon" that plays Stockfish NNUE's moves most of the time, except when the game is about to be a draw, then it switches t...

Re: Draw by 3 fold repetition...

Perhaps in such cases the new move failed high, which means new score > 0.00 (> old score), and the engined displayed 0.00 (old score) as the known lower bound. With more time it would then figure out its exact score. Rebel Decade never displayed fails lows, only exact scores (a failing high move w...

Re: Draw by 3 fold repetition...

Because SF prefers 0.00 over -0.01. How it chooses between 2 0.00 moves? First come, first served. An alpha-beta search does not even get to know that the second move is 0.00 and not <0.00. Depends on the implementation, I recall Rebel Decade used to be able to switch from some 0.00 move to another...
