    Sort of surprised Avrukh says he uses Stockfish 8, and didn’t seem too aware of Leela?

    I tried a whole day to install Leela onto ChessBase 15 with Windows 10 interface, and it was major arse pain. I failed and simply just use Komodo 10 and Stockfish 10.

    I got there eventually, by looking at the LcO page, and then a video on youtube.

    Interesting interview.

    I’m surprised he was using Stockfish 8 considering that 10 is free and way stronger. Actually, the development version of Stockfish 11 is quite a bit stronger than even 10 and they’re all free.

    That totally surprised me as well, I would have thought LcO would have to be the the first choice, with Stockfish 10 a close second.

    Timoschenko writes in the foreword of his recent book on the Sveshnikov Sicilian that he used a ‘supercomputer’. Later on he says that this means a Quad core PC with Houdini 2…

    Maybe a benefit of not using the latest / strongest engines is that this gives the reader a sense of accomplishment if they can improve on the book lines :-).
