This is what I get when I run ELFV1 on this:Attachment: omeien-take2.png [ 1.22 MiB | Viewed 874 times ] Here is the analysis of a diagram I posted with the bottom right stones in the wrong place, just for curiosity's sake. (Thanks, explo, for the correction.)Attachment: elfv1-omeien.png [ 1.24 MiB | Viewed 889 times ] Which weights/parameters are you using?

 Author: Calvin Clark [ Wed Sep 05, 2018 1:11 pm ] Post subject: Re: Book Diagram (ELF's opinion) It is interesting that the AI is already considering contact plays in this position. I am curious about how ELFv1 (or really any engine) would evaluate the contact plays marked below. I include both angle plays and attachments. Remembering that white is already considered to be ahead in this position and it's white's move, some (but not all) of these plays are bad enough to put white behind. Some are actually okay. But which ones? Think about it a bit. I will post what I find later. And before anyone says, "Come on, Calvin, the 2-2 point is obviously bad!" remember what we've learned in the past few years.

Then the lower side being the place to play is "no s***, sherlock" for me and the bots agree.(apparently this forum has some auto-replace censoring that spoiled my sibilance!)

 Author: Gomoto [ Wed Sep 05, 2018 1:24 pm ] Post subject: Re: Book Diagram (ELF's opinion) (Just derailing the thread)LOL O Meien also talks about finite and infinite go. I remember ...

 Author: Calvin Clark [ Wed Sep 05, 2018 2:33 pm ] Post subject: Re: Book Diagram (ELF's opinion) From Zone Press Park, I think O Meien mostly sees huge sector lines like this. A lot of the book is more understandable that way. Except for the food part. It doesn't help there.Attachment: sectors-omeien.png [ 875.32 KiB | Viewed 855 times ]
