Game 40: last game ends in a draw, Stockfish wins 5-1

A very interesting game, Komodo shows a clear white advantage. But with active and tactical play Stockfish manages to keep the game within the limits of a draw. Thus the match ends in a 5-1 victory for Stockfish (with 34 draws). [pgn][Event "asmFish170806-K11.2.2, Rapid 15m+10s"] [Site "AMD Ryzen 18...

Game 39: Blufenfeld, white looks better, but Komodo holds

This Blumenfeld line scores very well for white and at move 22 Stockfish has a score over +1. But this turns out to be illusory: within a few moves Komodo easily holds the draw.

Game 38: Komodo presses, Stockfish defends

Komodo presses hard for another win, sacrifices a piece with an enduring initiative. At move 29 black's position looks worrisome, but Stockfish defends and holds the draw.

Game 37: GUI aborts another game prematurely

Just as things start to get really interesting, the GUI says.... "draw". My oh my, whay a pity.....

Game 36: crazy game, many adventures, but.... drawn anyway

The return game is also rather crazy, it is a pity the GUI aborted it as a draw so early (although it looks like a draw anyway).

Game 35: even this murky gambit cannot prevent another draw

In this murky Trompovsky gambit white is two pawns down, but black's queen has to be safeguarded somehow. After some really interesting play, Komodo seems on its way to its 2nd win. But again we see an amazing evaluation mistake: obviously after 56.Kxc2 it is a draw, as black has the wrong bishop. B...

Game 34: another entertaining Botwinnik game

Stockfish chooses a different line in the return game, equalizing without too much trouble. Black gets some alarming passers, but by sacrificing its knight, Komodo easily holds the balance.

Game 33: SF scores a drawn rook ending as +3.00

The Botwinnik variation of the Semi Slav always leads to interesting play. Stockfish gets 3 pawns for a piece, but after 31... f6 a draw would be the logical outcome. As the game progresses, black loses control over the 3 white passers and Stockfish shows a +3.00 score in the remaining rook ending! ...

Game 32: slight Komodo edge not enough for a win

Komodo holds a slight edge during most of the game, by activating its king ( Kc3-d3-e4-e5! ). Nevertheless, the equilibrium never seems to be broken, so we witness yet another draw. Stockfish maintains a 5-1 lead. [pgn][Event "asmFish170806-K11.2.2, Rapid 15m+10s"] [Site "AMD Ryzen 1800X"] [Date "20...

Game 31: potential interesting gambit ends peacefully

The 4.e4 gambit in the Semi Slav used to lead to interesting games, but currently it looks more like a forced draw. Stockfish picks 8.Ne2 (instead of the more enterprising 8.Be2 ) and Komodo has no difficulties to hold the balance. [pgn][Event "asmFish170806-K11.2.2, Rapid 15m+10s"] [Site "AMD Ryzen...
