asmFish 2018-06-12 in Stage2 did it very well but ended at second place ,again close to Stockfish 140318 in reverse order from Stage1.
Now running Ginkgo 2.1 who did it great in stage1..will Ginkgo promote to the Candidates and replace Fire 6.1 in this top 8 engines? Then he has to end above Andscacs 0.93 ..that will normally happen as Ginkgo even ends above Fizbo 2.0 in Stage1.

Stockfish 060618 did it less good in Stage 2 and don't promote to Candidates
Now running last asmFish 2018-06-12
And today i receive Ginkgo 2.1 +syzygy from Frank Schneider..i'm already curious if this new Ginkgo will pass Fizbo 2
and how much he will gain with 6-men syzygy..will Gingko come closer to Fire ?!
When everything works great it should be tested and go through in 3 devisions..

Tried in mean time Komodo 12.1.1 with MCTS against K11.3.1 with as result in 100g.: 9.5 - 90.5 !?
shows a -392Elo in selfplay..Larry & Mark have some work to do..i'm sure they will progress fast..
Now running last Stockfish 180606 ,was time to update as people begin to ask for it..i want to remind this is a
complete new list in building on a i9 7980XE and it will need time to update all engines..even my table is not filled
up completly as i want..

Ethereal 10.00 did it really great in Stage 2!
Under the top engines he don't like to play against Ginkgo ,also seen in Stage 1..

Ethereal 9.88 did it great as a new entry engine and ends above Booot 6.2 ! Well done Andrew Grant ;)
A nice progress because not long ago i have first time Ethereal 9.64 enter my 1core list..the versions before where
each time too weak. But now even Ethreal 9.88 pass Stage 1 and will be tested later on for Stage 2.
Now in testing i have Fire 7 ,Norm bring just in time a version out to compete in TCEC S12 DivP.
And will of course here compared with Fire 6.1 and replace it by Fire 7 when ends higher in next Stages..

Komodo 12 default played his 13.000games and end just a little lower then K11.3.1

14-05-2018

Xiphos 0.2.5 did a very nice entry in this list ,no single problem and no losses on time in his 12.000games!
Later i will include also Ethereal 9.71 and Wasp 3.0
But yesterday i get by surprise Komodo 12 in e-mail that has Monte-Carlo Tree Search!!
Is up and running right now..

11-05-2018

Stockfish 140318 is again Champion!
I know it's not the last version ,but it's on my new build i9 7980XE where Stockish had to pass 5 devisions to become
champion..he was already a month a half ago on my 2 other systems as best engine and it shows again that now in these different devisions same engines came on top even i have used each time different Time Controls.
At the moment Stockfish had to play 13.200games to get the title and my tables are still not completed.
These will be filled up with new engines ,like i already did in 1core list with Ethereal and Xiphos who doing well.
So these will come over to this list also as they progressing well..and then of course waitng when LCZero get strong
enough to get a first enter..(I try her out in Pre-testings)
Total now 76.600games are played on new system and begins to get a shape that i wanted..still some changes will
come but i have to add more engines first..then update to all last versions ;)


09-05-2018

No surprices here ,Stockfish 140318 & asmFish 2018-03-07 playing for Chamionship title!


07-05-2018

Andscacs 0.93 played his games
In mean time same 4 first engines are playing to get a place into the Final and play then for Championship!


01-05-2018

First 1500games with TC 3m+3s are done.
Now busy to include Andscacs 0.93


26-04-2018

Texel 1.08a5 completed his games and each engine played 11.000games with a Total from 66.000games.
Stage 1 will get filled up with later on..
Now trying new TC 3m+3s and engines using 3cores for Candidates..first 30games with Stockfish-asmFish gives averange depth 35-36! So that looks good.

First 8 engines from Stage 2 are playing in Candidates to be come last 4 Challenger's.

Hannibal 1.7 zero problems..each engine has now 10.000games
Next is Texel 1.08a5

18-04-2018

Chiron 4.0 has some problem to run 18games at same time with TC 10s+1s but get his 9000games.
Nirvanachess 2.4 i had to stop these testings as games continues under zero like -36sec. So this engine i let out
from Stage 1
Now busy with Hannibal 1.7 and this one looks good ,still playing without problems.
I think even i give in Cutchess Gui a Margin from 300ms that these engines need a Move Overhead setting..
Total games : 45.000

In mean time i also tried a new TC : 1s+10s and this gives a much deeper depth then 10s+1s and about equal depth with 1m+5s games..but takes 1 Hour longer time to play 100games..

16-04-2018

Booot 6.2 played his 8000games
Now running Chiron 4.0


15-04-2018

Ginkgo 2.03 did it well..and surprisely ended higher then Andscacs 0.93 with this TC 10s+1s
each engine 7000games total: 28.000games
Now busy to include Booot 6.2
I follow closely LCZero and it's amazing to see a engine using your grafic card.
It still a very long way to go..but one day i hope i can include it in my lists.
I do now and then a test-run to see how far it has progressed..at the moment it's too weak when i let it play
against Texel 1.08a5 that i take as reference point to enter list.
Results where:
LCZero cpu - Texel 1.08a5 : +0 -99 =1
LCZero gpu - Texel 1.08a5 : +0 -99 =1
So both versions getting just one draw game..is some gain ;) as the versions before was 0 - 100 as result.
I will just follow it up..when LC0 will win games..and when it can beat Texel to get a place in my lists!
Because there goal is very high..to become strongest engine and pass Stockfish on any list!

12-04-2018

Andscacs 0.93 added..each engine has now 6000games
Next is Ginkgo 2.03

09-04-2018

I had to change things..trying different Time Controls doesn't give me higher depth's ,it al depends on increments
that these engines get in these fast games.
During tuning system i reached with Stockfish & asmFish a averange depth from +30 when using 1m5s TC!
The meaning was for each next Stage to use 1min. more with 1sec. less increments..
So 1m+5s then 2m+4s ,3m+3s ,4m+2s and 5m+1s ,but these 5m+1s gives even lower averange depth's then 1m+5s!
Okay with higher Stages i gone use more cores..but 5m+1s with 18cores i get depth +33 ,that's only 3 depth's more
then using 1m+5s and each engine use 1core.
This means that the Stages are all too close and no use to run these different Stages..still have to decide how
many Stages i gone create..but that i will see during testings..
Because i get already these nice depth's i tried TC 10s+1s ,this goes fast and play 1000games for each engine and get still
a good averange depth from 25! And i make this as Stage 1 now ..so Stage 1 before is now Stage 2 with TC 1m+5s.
The new Stage 1 has now 15.000games with first 6 engines..this will get filled up till 24 engines.
Stage 2 has now 13engines..normally 12 ,but i had already run these games..so later maybe the last engine will fall out
and stay in Stage 1.
It will take time,but when one time table get filled up completely then it will be more clear with each engine update to
see if new version can hold or even promote to next Stage.

03-04-2018

Texel 1.08a5 has taken over place 12 from Hannibal 1.7
The first 12 engines promote to Stage 2 ,of course Stage 1 will get filled up till 24 engines!
As there are no stronger engines i want to check out first these other Stages..
I'm testing right now Stockfish 140318 against asmFish 2018-03-07 with 200games to see what averange depth
they get with this 2m+4s TC with each using 2cores and 9games playing at same time.

02-04-2018

Already 11 engines in list..last added was Hannibal 1.7
Next is Texel 1.08a5
Spreadsheet link is created to view all data and ongoing testings!

29-03-2018
 
System doing great..first little list is already build with 3600games
i9 7980XE page wil get updated with a few links to a spreadsheet where you can see the ongoing tests.
Will see how i gone do it with these different Stages.
Also running 7-Test-Suites that also will have a seperate spreadsheet page
When the Tournament-List get filled up the first time it gone be easier to follow these engines and if they can reach next Stage!
Lower placed engines will also get in testing and when they can't hold Stage 1 i will create different Devisions (1-2-3..)

21-03-2018

First games are running now ;)
