    Hopefully someone has already said this, but it's Evans Gambit, not Evan's. The inventor's last name was Evans. There was nobody named Evan.

    Do I have to knock over a bank to buy the same hardware? Last time I checked the engines running on the TCEC hardware are doing 100x the nps I get on my computer. 😼 Isn't declining the gambit known to be inferior iirc it is? So black pretty much has to accept.

    It’s interesting how you say cowards don’t accept it, but leela would probably always accept it as it is the best move

    Yes iirc it is generally the opinion of strong players and engines that accepting the Evans Gambit is best.

    Why do humans think its a good idea to place these engines into bad positions? Why not allow the engines to play what they want to play and go from there to see which engine is best.

    Muaj më parë

    @Dario Bariơić But thats not at all true; the initial Alpha Zero vs Stockfish match demonstrated that. At the very least (in the spirit of having some variety) maybe make the engines play ( for example) e4 10 times, d4 ten times, ect ect as white and reverse things as black. But placing them into out right bad positions just seems faulty to me...

    Because it will end in a draw 99% of the time. You have to make them play variety of openings and then see who wins more times.

Its not about the exciting fireworks, its about the silent approach to them, the quiet preparing moves to set up the fireworks for the finish. Thank you.

    This doesn't make any sense . Why would stockfish be given slight advantage against Leela

  • Quag


    Muaj më parë

    There was no advantage given because after this game, Stockfish was forced to play the same line as black and Leela as white. The result was a draw. In that game, both sides played exactly the same moves until move 16 where instead of ...g6, Stockfish went for ...f5 - as mentioned briefly in this video at 5:44 - Stockfish was then able to equalize the game and secure the draw.
