  Sargon: If anyone knows of any other games from this 2018 AlphaZero - Stockfish "Match" that are not in our database—but available in PGN format—please provide a link.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sargon: Some of these games were basically started from "book" positions, as indicated by the erroneous annotation symbols. I'll be sure to clean things up, and we'll probably ultimately separate this current batch of 210 games into two discrete tournaments.

For the moment, it's easy enough to tell which games fit which category.

  jith1207: Thanks for doing this.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: It's nice that so many games were produced, it wasn't always like this.
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: I see many draws ending after 256 moves. Was there a weird "256 move rule" in place?
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: <alexmagnus> Yes, they'd call it a draw after 512 "half-moves," mercifully.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Why did stock win the first eight decisive games but then lose the match?
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: What makes you think these games are in order?

They played a 1000-game match without opening books, which A0 won +155 -6 =839. IIRC 110 of those games have been released and are in the CG database (including all six SF wins). They also played other ways, including I-don’t-know-how-many games using preselected openings taken from the 2016 engine championships. One hundred of those games have been published and are in the database. You can identify them by the pencil icon in list view or the “book” notation in the game score.
