TheGridGinko vs Leela Analysis -- What Went Wrong

Unwillingness to Simplify in a Difficult Position

[Editor’s Note:

We tend to feature Leela wins on this blog. But sometimes you have to take a look at your losses – whether as a person or an engine.

IM William Paschall has been kind enough to analyze this loss at the WCCC with black against TheGridGinko. A theme seems to emerge: while hanging on to your pieces when you’re up can be good, refusing to trade when you’re down can be bad. ]

Maybe looking at some of the parameters to make Leela play more conservatively would be good, especially against stronger opponents.
