CCCC rounds 32,33,34,35 and 36. Leela with 5 draws and an "almost win" against mighty Komodo!





First round CCCC approaches to its end and situation is clear by now.
Houdini, Komodo and Stockfish will be in top 3 advancing to stage 2, with Stockfish and Komodo to fight for the 1st place in this 1st stage, thatdoesn't mean much anyway, Fire and Leela would most probably advance to the next round also with some minor chances of not achieving it, and Shredder, Booot, Ethereal and Andscacs will fight for the other 3 places for stage 2.

Leela had 5 draws in these 5 rounds with 2 easy and 3 very hard opponents and she has 7 consecutive draws.

Simulations using Bayeselo give right now(after and the Andscacs-Inavhoe 1-0 game of round 37):
Probability to promote:
Stockfish 100 %
Komodo    100 %
Houdini   100 %
Fire      100 %

Booot     81.67 %
Andscacs  77.67 %
Ethereal  44.67 %


ROUND 32
Leela had an extra-disastrous opening with Senpai and never managed to recover so it ended in a draw. Against the very weak in this CCCC Senpai, Leela had to win but the selection of the opening moves was a nightmare and even with Senpai playing sub optimal moves, Leela never really managed to get an advantage so it was easy draw.

ROUND 33
Leela against another very weak in this CCCC engine, didn't manage to win again, because her opening treatment was not perfect, against going for a very open center that does not suit her. She took a small advantage but it was not enough.
Stockfish won against Houdini in this round so Houdini now has 2 losses.

Ethereal lost to Arasan with white and that was a big surprise but the way it lost is very odd and must be due to hardware problems. Ethereal played 59.Nxd5?? an incredible blunder that only considers at depth 1. Afterwards examination of the logs showed it has spent 6 seconds at depth a that is a factor of 1000 more than what normally does so there had to be a problem with Ethereal's usage of hardware. CCCC should probably examine if they have to replay the game preferably from the position before Nxd5.

ROUND 34
Leela at last, had this time a normal opening and tried against Andscacs to gain some decisive advantage but Andscacs played very well and some times it's not easy to win.
Ethereal drew Wasp and Shredder didn't manage to win against Gull with white so they lost some ground for the top 8 battle, since Booot won against Arasan with black.

ROUND 35
Leela with white pieces faced the CCCC till that time leader Komodo and after a rather dubious opening choice she quickly managed to gain a small advantage. This advantage grew stronger as she was constantly outplaying Komodo and soon they reached a won position for Leela. Leela didn't choose the best moves to end this quickly but still maintained the winning advantage. They got to an endgame that should be won for white and they finally reached a position that endgame tablebases show it's winning for white. Komodo showed it on its PV also but Leela didn't manage to find the winning moves. She had 4 chances to win in this endgame and along with the other 2 chances to win easily in late middlegame earlier, she lost 6 times the move to offer the finishing blow.
She(the test 10 nets generally, as also one of them 11089 that is being used in CCCC) obviously lacks specific endgame knowledge for some endings especially with opposite color Bishops endings but a new test 20 is being run and hopefully will provide better endgame, even though other training methods for endgames are examined also.


Boot won again and since Ethereal and Andscacs drew and Shredder lost to Fizbo(!), its 2nd loss in CCCC, it got a step closer to next stage.

She needs improvement in this and she will probably improve. Endgame tablebases that supports them but no uses them in CCCC is an obvious way that she improves but this is not the whole story since tablebases does not solve the whole problem. More training will surely help and better training procedures are to be examined that will fix these problems, since it's a pity to outplay opponents and not take what she deserved because of not being able to convert.

ROUND 36
Another round with a very tough opponent for Leela, one of the biggest tests for her as she faced with black Houdini. Yet, she very easily with some paradoxical middlegame play, seemingly not paying that much attention to the strong white forces that gathered in the Kingside and could threaten
the black King, it managed not only to equalize but to achieve and a minor edge! It was not enough though with the solid play by Houdin.

Shredder had a draw with Ethereal, Boot with Texel and Andscacs lost to Komodo so the battle for top 8 continues in a dramatic fashion since many critical games, like Booot-Shredder of next round are coming.

  1. Great to see the potential this project has :)

  2. Shredder is in much bigger trouble than these percentages suggest...

  3. Hi, I’m curious about who authors this blog, who annotates the games, and certainly who the project developers are. I’d like to see credit where credit is due!

  4. I just want to say again that I really appreciate and enjoy these blogs. I wish there was less 'positive spin' thrown in, but I guess it's only natural for one so close to the project to want to put it in the best possible light. I'm a big Leela fan (and Leela Zero (Go version) as well), but I prefer the unvarnished truth in general. Still, keep going with these blogs. Much appreciated! 😊
