On Wednesday at 11 a.m. Eastern Time we have a 4 game match scheduled with FM John Meyer, 2270 FIDE, 2209 USCF, at 45' + 15", Komodo giving knight (b1) for pawn (c7,d7,e7, and f7 respectively) handicap. Time limit as usual 45' + 15". Seven years ago John swept 4 out of four against Rybka at knight odds, and recently FM Bolzoni scored four wins, one draw, and one loss against Komodo at knight odds, hence the one pawn "change" which should make it a close match. In the opening a knight is worth at least four pawns, so this is roughly a three pawn handicap. At two pawn handicap, Komodo scored 50% against two GMs, scoring well when one of the pawns was an edge pawn but poorly otherwise.
There is also a short two game match planned for tomorrow (Tuesday) at 11 a.m. against a visiting British player rated 2080 FIDE (Mark Gray, age 30). Same time control but full knight odds. I'll be happy if we draw one of the two games. Knight odds is just a large handicap for a serious game.
More matches to come in near future.
