AlphaZero vs. Stockfish 8

OK, AlphaGo has morphed into AlphaZero, a self-learning neural net that is claimed to have trounced Stockfish 8, the current champ chess engine.

There were 100 games between the two, ten of which were published in this paper:

Mastering Chess and Shogi by Self-Play with a General Reinforcement Learning Algorithm (arxiv)

Now, lots of sites have the 10 games available for replay, but the PGN isn’t easy to find for download (if it exists at all). So I’ve copied out the games from the pdf, and normalized the headers, for the convenience of you, dear reader.

z-PGN: AlphaZero vs. Stockfish 8.pgn

I took the date from chess24, which put it one day previous to the pdf’s publication date.

OK, that’s that  (but, for the interested, here is the wiki link for further reading: AlphaZero)
