New Android UCI engine: Andscacs 0.921 TCEC

Andscacs is today one of the Top-10 engines, among the strongest "followers" placed just behind Stockfish, Komodo & Houdini.

Andscacs is developed and programmed by Daniel José Queraltó from Andorra. It currently plays in TCEC-10 Round-1 undefeated and will qualify for Round-2.

Daniel Jose describes Andscacs in his HOMEPAGE like: "It's born in September 2013. It has approximately 3240 elo. The new versions will be published in this website. Andscacs means "And" for Andorra, the country where I live, and scacs for "escacs", chess in catalan."

CCRL 40/4 rates Andscacs 0.92 about 3270 ELO for Windows, which makes it #7 of the list. Therefore, to honor the TCEC event (i guess), the author has decided last week to provide the source code of the version playing there. It was an unexpected but a nice gift indeed because the engine used to be closed source until today.

I didn't wait too long to notify Alexei Chernakoff who kindly sweated a lot to port the code to Android. The result seems very satisfying after a little rework for arm8 version.

I'll be highly glad to rate Andscacs in Rapidroid, which i hope to update before December comes.

8.1 and 8.9 versions were both ported by Alexei Chernakoff. Good news for 64 bit users is that we have an arm8 build this time.

TCEC-10 is playing with Stockfish dev, Houdini 6 and Fire 6.1!

TCEC Season-10 could finally start this week after a lot of speculations (usually, as always) and some delay.

No matter what, TCEC is still the most interesting computer chess competition and the organisers deserve some appreciation for the efforts,
This time the hardware is a rental monster using high end components like:
-Dual Xeon 2699 v4 – total 44 cores
- Supermicro X10DRL-i
- 64 GB RAM meaning max of 16 GB hash per engine
- 250 GB Crucial SSD
- Windows Server 2012 R2

For Stage 1 the server will be limited to 22 cores, from Stage 2 and for the Superfinal the event will run on the full power of the 44 cores.

TCEC Season 10 participants are:

Andscacs
Arasan
Bobcat
Booot
Chiron
Fire
Fizbo
Fruit
Gaviota
Ginkgo
Gull
Hakkapeliitta
Hannibal
Houdini
Jonny
Komodo
Laser
Nemorino
Nirvana
Rybka
Stockfish
Texel
Vajolet2
Wasp

The stage structure is like the following:

TCEC Season 10 will consist of a preliminary stage, a qualifiers stage, and a Superfinal. Each will have different time controls and structure

Stage 1: this is the preliminary stage, involving 24 engines, playing a single round robin (276 games). The time control of the games will be 60 mins + 10 sec/move. The top 8 engines qualify for the next stage

Stage 2: the second stage will be qualifier of 8 engines with 2x double round robin (112 games) with a slightly longer time control 90 min + 10 sec/move

Superfinal: two engines will participate in the Superfinal, playing a total of 100 games for the title of Grand Champion of TCEC

This version of SugaR has been lately tested and rated by CCRL in their 40/4 rating list, as a Stockfish version. After CCRL released SugaR as the topper of the list, the originality of the engine has immediately generated a lot of discussions in forums.

Some people still think SugaR differs enough from Stockfish code and some others defend that it's just a simple bunch of tweaks by Marco Zerbinati.

I think Stockfish main code is the only independent engine to keep following. But my thoughts won't  keep me from sharing what's available.
