Sorry for being such a dickhead. I am a frustrated failed master and I like to ban anyone so I feel much relieved.

Have you tried to not use any book? Engines matches must be made without them.

I know it sounds weird but in my engine tournaments: RaubfishX beats Stockfish, Stockfish beats Sugar and Sugar beats RaubfishX. And non of the matches is close.

Hello, I plan to make a public tournament versus the other strongest books, streamed on YouTube, as soon as I can. This site works per orders: few orders means few works, few updates and few novelties; many orders means many work, many updates and many novelties.

Hello, Japhet. Click on 'Shop' above, then click on Goi Opening Book. You should see the Paypal button. You will pay through Paypal, but the registration to it is not required, just enter your credit card credentials on the Paypal paying form. In other words the creation of a Paypal account is not needed.

Sugar NN was always losing clearly to latest Stockfish. Now I did set Sugar's contempt to 0 and after 100x 5 minute blitz games the result was 50-50. So you were right. BTW: Contempt 24 is done for tournaments because SF wins more often against weaker Engines. (As far as I know). vs LC0 it probably should follow your advise and play with contempt 0.

@Ellington of course, that is the least. I've still to think on whether to put limitations or not, and how long an update period will be if there will ever be a limitation...

Thanks for the response. A question about the pre-order: will a pre-order get the first official release?
-------------------------------------

Name: Massimiliano Goi
Date: 09/07/19 Hour: 05:07:43

We are still working on the main openings. As soon as the main lines will be completed I'll start to put The Oak in preordering. Preorderers will have the right to get all the updates until the publishing of the official one. That one will be then perfected for next editions. The cost will be around 20$. With the book a PDF file showing the characteristics of the main openings will be given too.

When will The Oak be released? And how much will it cost?

Not at all, my friend. Contempt set to 0 turned Stockfish Polyglot into a perfect deep analysis engine. In deep analysis I can stand still on a single move even for 1.5 minutes. I invite you to download it and try it both in analysis and blitz gaming. By the way, I have to thank you, as without your pushing I wouldn't have moved to try out Lc0, what an excelent engine! (at least on my computer having an NVidia GeForce 780 Ti-OC)

Hi, your assumption about contempt might be only true at very short time and very short time might have also very high variance.

Hi Massimiliano, Thanks for putting Raubfisch in the spotlight of your website. I take this opportunity to thank all the users who use both Raubfisch to play games online, to analyse games played. Indeed Raubfisch is a mix of a with formidable skills of positional chess engine (a bit like Hiarcs in his time) and also an art to fight aggressively on closed positions, thus pushing his opponents to in their limits.

Persia, now I have some free time to answer you properly: I had to hide your e-mail otherwise the spider crawler bots would fill your account of junk (I suggest to everyone to not directly publish his own e-mail address). If you have any offer for me, write me in the Concats section and show me what you got. I'm in constant need of powerful hardware, thank you.

Hi Massimiliano, Thank you for taking your time and trying Shashchess. Shashchess is right now the 4th strongest Stockfish version on CCRL rating. And it is for sure stronger with longer time controls. Now I didn't watch the whole video but the best results you get with NN's completely off and TAL + Capablanca on (21 contmept). Tal is contemtpt over 30 and Petrosian is less than -6 . Capablanca is contempt 0 and if you leave all of them off than Shash decides which contempt to use given the characteristic of the position (as far as I know). Anyways I just would like to see a program which also uses MCTS. It must not be Shashchess. I hope the developer himself will soon comment the results himself.
