    Leela_bt, can you tell us where we (or just me?) went wrong on game #2113558? :)

  • lazyplayer at 2019-09-05

    Well, I think my last error is 15 d5. I should have played 15 d9. I also think 14 e7 is likely an error.

  • lazyplayer at 2019-09-05

    Well, maybe not 15 d9. But there has to be something... :)

    Caroll, thanks. I’m thinking maybe error is c11... there has to be a way to put up some serious resistance as black but I couldn’t find it.

    I would also love comments on this game:

    Where I did wrong? I thought I had done everything right but I’m losing at the end!

  • lazyplayer at 2019-09-07

    The only choice that I’m not confident with in that game is g8, and I admit it’s because I’ve copied it from a previous game by leela...

    Lazy, this looks like a game well played by both sides...

    The only way I can think of to find an improvement for your game would be to play the opposite side against Leela and see where she diverges...

  • lazyplayer at 2019-09-07

    Bill, one possible improvement should be 26 j9 instead of 26 j8, I had missed this detail, but does it make a difference? I don’t think so.

    Another idea could be 8 j6 instead of 8 i9. I think this is probably the error. A minor error at 8 and it’s game over with leela.

    Bill, and I think this is a general phenomenon, the MCTS bots are stronger than us especially in the initial phase of the game.
