Hey guys,

Fauzi Gauntlet II is starting. Notable updates from last time: Fauzi 3.1, RPC Needle and Sword, Perfect2014t, and a new book, "Tomcat". Because of the large number of opponents, the time this gauntlet will take to finish will be very long. The first gauntlet took over a month. The gauntlet is for testing purposes first and as a show second. So the rules and settings are designed with book tuning/improvement in mind. But they are still a great peak at the relative strengths of different books. The better a book does against Fauzi 3.1, the more games will be run with that book. This is to lower the amount of games run on very weak books and jump straight to the good stuff. Only my ABK Book Bash events are proper and formal abk book tournaments. The problem with gauntlets is the audience does not know how well other books fare against other books, only how a book fares against Fauzi 3.1.

CURRENT STANDINGS:
Current standings mean these are the newest posted results for the gauntlet, don't need to look elsewhere to find the latest scores!

Games with both side's eval at +2.0 for one side is automatically adjudicated as a win

No endgame tablebases

The following books are not currently tested because they are poor performers from the last gauntlet:
Houdini Nobook, SF Rybka, Dcordbit Superbook, Zbook, Mybook15, DGrafen, HSClassic10mv3, and BigDaddy3. Some of these may be tested later on but right now the focus is to get the more promising books tested.

Maybe I can send a new book "RpC-Sword"?
Parent - - By Dark_wizzie (***) [us] Date 2014-07-05 06:39
Yes, testing is still just starting and I have not done any games with Needle yet for this gauntlet. Send it to me via email soon and I'll replace RPC Needle with your new book. I'm assuming RPC Sword is a newer version of Needle.
Parent - - By Saldom (***) [ru] Date 2014-07-05 08:31
No, Sword, is absolutely a new book. It was designed for Rapid and Long time controls. In the next few hours I will send a link to this book. Also, I will send a link to the new version of Needle. Test please both books.
Parent - By Dark_wizzie (***) [us] Date 2014-07-06 07:22
I have yet to receive the new Needle.

I'm a big proponent for listing how fast you computer is along with time control. Because time control by itself is utterly useless without knowing the speed of calculation. Sedat Canbaz has a benchmark section for SF and I am listed there as Dark_wizzie. Currently I am decreasing my overclock from 4.5 to 4.4ghz and improving the timings on my ram.

Also I'd like to share with you guys an amusing picture:


Look at the time on the clock. This is for a 10 minute game!!! That is insane.

Wow, Rybka forum absolutely blows. Can't edit my original post now.

Hi Dark_wizzie,

Is possible to replace Needle? The entire series 5.1.x was with the big mistake. :confused:

Best regards
Aleksandr

Mail me with what you want. Do you want sword replaced as well?

Next standings update will not occur until all books has played 50 games. This will not happen in at least 2 weeks. (Update after all books played 50, 75, 100, 125, 150 games, etc).

BTW, I would like to commend author of Barracuda, for an update that came from nowhere and is quite strong, and Sedat, for one hell of a neutral book. Neutral book at 8th place? That's pretty crazy. We'll see in the future whether they will continue to fight well even after they are tuned against though...
Many of the bottom books have been dropped to more quickly do games for the top books. At 75 games per book I will look again to see if I want to slash any more books for the golden 100 games per book achievement.

Seven books came in behind NOBOOK? Really??? :lol:
Parent - By Dark_wizzie (***) [us] Date 2014-09-03 02:05 Edited 2014-09-03 02:09
Oh man. I actually cut out like 5 books because they were worse performers than the bottom ones of my test. I can see how it happens... lazy authors that think collecting games is all that's required to make a good book. No testing, nothing. I have a 3gb book that plays the most random openings ever.
Also, Fauzi was hard at work tuning against the weaker lines of the bottom books. The perfect example is Rotate7. Rotate was like 45% vs 55% against Fauzi in the past, but apparently Fauzi managed to hit Rotate's weaker lines and just ride it into victory... Now it's at the bottom of the pile. With only a few ABK authors still active and working on their books, every mistake in the old abk books pile up and they perform worse and worse.

Oh yeah... Another factor is time control (and of course, calculating speed). Some books are designed for shorter time controls and tested (if at all) with a much weaker machine. If somebody runs 3 minute games with a Q6600, that's like... equivalent to (4 x 3)= 12 times shorter time controls than my testing. But I don't care what time control the author wants to use for their book, I'm testing it under my conditions.

I would think that the book exit positions would have gone through some sanity check that would pretty much assure that any book would be at least as good as no book at all, but I guess not! :lol:
Parent - By Dark_wizzie (***) [us] Date 2014-09-12 13:28
Yeah... Some book authors need to put a little bit more effort into their books! :lol:

Can I Submit new book Tria+JK? :evil:

It feels like you tune against Fauzi as your full time job, lol. Yes, go ahead and send me the other book. What is the difference between the books?
Parent - - By Saldom (***) [eu] Date 2014-09-04 05:19
My Needle 5.3.0 does not know about the existence of ABK books.
Tria+JK - the widest my book for the Blitz.

Saldom, did you ever send me Tria? If you did, I must have misplaced the link, can you send it to me again? If I can't get ahold of it in the next few days, it cannot be tested under the Fauzi Gauntlet. Sorry for the short notice.

Thanks!

It'll take another week to get the results in. There is a lot of computer work here, rest assured I'm not "slacking" by any means and the computer is working every night. There have been a few new books which I did not expect, so I have to test them from ground up, which takes a long time.
Parent - - By Dark_wizzie (***) [us] Date 2014-09-05 21:24
Ok, new update: There is obviously a new chess engine out now, so that combined with other factors will cause the next and final Fauzi Gauntlet II update to take longer than normal. I estimate 1 1/2 to 2 weeks.
Parent - - By mare1975 (**) [hr] Date 2014-09-19 19:43
O, yeah! My Baracuda ABK ( only 146 KB !!!!! ) at 9th place.... :cool:
Parent - - By Dark_wizzie (***) [us] Date 2014-09-19 19:49 Edited 2014-09-19 19:52
The new books all tend to do better than others because Fauzi has no tuning against them at all. Some books stand the test of time and continue to be decent competitors against Fauzi, but some drop. (For example, Rotate is now on the bottom!) Still, it's nice to see strong neutral books. Quality over quantity?

Anyways: Are you still planning to update Barracuda? Looking forward to testing Barracuda2015 in my third Fauzi gauntlet... :cool: Your book is actually more like in 6th place, because two books are just older versions of another books, and Fauzi [001] is just a copy of Fauzi I was using for testing.
Parent - By mare1975 (**) [hr] Date 2014-09-19 21:58 Edited 2014-09-19 22:08
Planing to update Baracuda to 2014d... As we speak , I m working on new lines. Hope  it will be finished till 1st of December. Plan is still to keep Baracuda neutral, well balanced book for engine testing ( up to 8 moves ).
