PostPost subject: Komodo knight odd match vs FM Victor Bolzoni : report    Posted: Wed Jul 29, 2015 8:13 pm Reply to topic Reply with quote

First game.
I feel Victor was not (yet) in a fighting mood for the first game probably because unconventional conditions : playing a computer, the operator (me) clicking and typing. More, I had trouble with Arena interface : sometime the position changed the list move going backward for unknown reasons. I thought it was because I touched the wheel of the mouse but after deactivate the weel, the trouble stays. So, for some moves Komodo lost the ponder. In the end of the first game I saw I didn't set the EGTB, I try to set the parameter, I have to copy past from another engine, but when I reloaded Komodo, may be I try to configure to fast the parameters and Arena crashed. That's why some moves where lost.
Victor took a lot of time in the beginning of the games, Victor do that regularly, even in long games. When he tried to go faster, because his clock ran near 1 min, he blundered.
I had trouble with Arena, the time of Victor reached 0.00 and engine stopped to think. I had trouble with the real clock too, I added only 5 sec per move for operating but it was too short, I had to reset this clock too.

Second game.
I decide to post only on talkchess forum and less often (no more on FICS).
I set higher time for Victor in Arena (Arena is a pain to set clock, only advancing second by second) and more time for Komodo on the table clock.
Victor decided to play faster. The opening chosen was 1.e4. A weak opening for a knight handicap. 3.Nxe5 is probably already a blunder because the e-file is open, the kings will fast castle on the same side. Very few chance to get a complicated game for white. Pieces exchange without big threats ans less and less hope to get play for white.

Third game.
It was already around 20.00 now. Around average 2h30m per game.
We take a break walking to the shop, bring food and eat.
Game ran more smoothly now, less external interference, but we are both tired. The match last 8h with only 1 hour of rest.
Victor play the beginning of the game quite fast but when Komodo played the strong 22.d5!, Victor had to take more time and around 7 minutes around move #25 (I don't remember exactly which one). With less time, some inaccuracy appears 33...Ra6? and 38...Rb8?, after that Komodo can draw easily.
Game ended around 23.00.

2nd day of the match will be next Sunday for the 3 last games. We try to begin 1 hour sooner and I'll look to use the Chessbase interface to avoid all this troubles.

Victor will probably make a better score than the first day ... or not Wink
