Stockfish and american wanabes

wow, lc0 actually won a lot of games in tcec ! More than stockfish !

Looking forward to a great superfinal between those 2

I expect an easy win from lc0 but a stockfish easy win is not unexpected either(if that makes sense...)

fire and ethereal are surely weaker though...
They seem way too weak to surpass Komodo,houdini and komodo mcts.
At least in the rating lists...
2020-03-31 04:33:26
Komodo's authors are getting really old, and Houdart just clones a strong engine every couple of years.

Stockfish On The Worlds Most Powerful Supercomputer ?!topic/fishcooking/0MDzbE-Jedc

I had this idea which may be useless but anyways...

Lc0 evaluation of a position is better. I mean, if we restrict the plies to be the same...

So I assume that its static evaluation is better.(Maybe it is not and its strength comes from how it searches the tree or a combination of evaluation and search that won't bring the same results in another engine if only the evaluation is coppied...)

If it is true that lc0 static evaluation is better than stockfish then the stockfish team can get many positions and use an autotuner to tune the static evaluation function to give the same evaluations as the lc0 evaluation function.

Or at least it seems so to me.

Either they are already doing so if it is possible or it is simply not possible.

I doubt I would get this idea and stockfish team doesn't already know.

I just found out a way to access the results of some of the CCCC events

Was that always there and I didn't notice?

Next to the name of the even, currently GPU Not-Gambits (10|3), there's a downward arrow that opens a list with some of the events...

Seems like what I have previously missed was 12 draws between lc0 and stockfish...

Such a pity that stockfish is not included this time...

It would make sense if Komodo wasn't participating but since Komodo is, why not stockfish as well?

Stockfish 11 Plays The (A.R.B.C.S) - Kings & Pawns Game - A.R.B :)

Below is Stockfish's game Who would have guessed 1. b4 as it's first move ? and Why ? I am sure most Humans would play 1. e4 or 1. d4 first ? and then march the King forward in the centre ?

I would love to see some Expert Analysis showing Stockfish's reasons for it's strange play!!topic/fishcooking/mgz2-3XYI8Y

by the way, if anyone missed the transition, the site that shows lc0 progress has been moved

What happened at stockfish - Lc0 in cccc?

I saw that many games have been drawn but now that I see again they have already moved on to a gpu tournament which brings me to the next question: Why Komodo participates in a gpu only tournament? Why not the other engines as well?

I don't think that you need to add one for comparing stockfish 11 with more recent dev versions.

It's true that stockfish plays better with them though.

You can use google to find out how to download them, from a quick google search I found this site:

Which has some sites that you can download them from as well as instructions for how to best use them. (Make sure to keep the WDL files on an SSD if you can.)

Unfortunately, I can't tell what the matter is with the lower nps. I hope someone will get to the bottom of this.
