Abstract/Summary

TCEC12 was the 12th season of the Top Chess Engine Championship and ran from 18th April to July 5th, 2018. TCEC has become the largest Open Computer Chess Championship. It attracts the best engines in the field and provides an opportunity for absolute and comparative analysis of the participating engines in a computational experiment. TCEC12 featured the first TCEC appearance of a ‘new architecture’ neural-network engine, LEELA CHESS ZERO, albeit unsupported by GPUs. LC0 was derived from LEELA ZERO GO, itself inspired by Deep Mind’s mould-breaking ALPHAGO ZERO project. After 772 games at super-GM level, STOCKFISH was the Grand Champion with KOMODO and HOUDINI also on the podium. The attached files provide all the games (annotated, with some Superfinal games 'played out'), game detail and summary statistics.
