Re: Forward Chess New Book Drop

Nezhmetdinov is one of the most richly endowed players. His games reveal the beauty of chess and make you love in chess not so much the points and high placings, but the wonderful harmony and elegance of this particular world. (Tal) I have played four games with the Tatar master and the score is 3-...

Re: ShashChess

Actually, NNUE has brought in more risk-aversion, generally, along with more strength.

Re: ShashChess

Shashchess 18 https://github.com/amchess/ShashChess/releases/tag/18 On this occasion, I want to reiterate the goal of this Stockfish derivate is only to demonstrate Shashin theory can improve, at least at LTC, original engine's strength and hard positions solving capability in a flexible way. So, f...

Re: Stockfish: Our lawsuit against ChessBase

...he didn’t care if ChessBase’s behavior was technically legal if it went against his conception of correct behavior. You can even almost ignore the "correctness" thing it just casts doubt about the decision makers most basic competence. If you rely on the work of foss developers and release a pro...

Re: New commercial engine Revenge 1.0

Yeah, except that SF-NNUE has so much strength that it could afford to take a few more risks without losing Elo.
Unfortunately, it doesn't 'know' or 'understand' that.

Remember, when they added contempt to classical SF, it played more aggressively AND gained strength.

Re: Gary Kasparov 58 Years old is no longer 2812 use your engine

I watched live as GK had Black vs MVL and he had White busted right out of the opening. He just lacked the technique to convert at this faster time control, which can easily induce blunders, spoiling a great position in just a few quick moves. Vachier-Lagrave is certainly up to date with current the...

Re: New commercial engine Revenge 1.0

Made no different to set Stockfish to 2250 Elo or to set Revenge to 2250 Elo. The question is more ... which can play the most interesting chess (human-view) with 1600, 1800, 2000 or 2200 Elo. OK, Stockfish have a great playing style also but the style from Pedone is differently to Stockfish. The c...

Re: Raubfisch X45e_nn_sl-bmi2 game (part of my test).

Does X45e really use MCTS? I don't see a UCI option for it.
It certainly looks impressive. :)

Re: Raubfisch X45e_nn_sl-bmi2 game (part of my test).

Hey Ruxy :) I'm curious, which NNUE net did you use with R-fish? Thanks! 8-) I don't know the legal status of this engine. But the latest version (X45e) plays extremely aggressively. Just a sample (Alekhine): [Event "NN Test113"] [Site "ISR 3"] [Date "2021.07.07"] [Round "3"] [White "Raubfisch X45e_...
