Re: Komodo 9.3x give-away contest, ends 18:00h CET (Nov., 11

I thought the competition asked for number of wins rather than points. +1000 it did - But you can compute the score from wins and losses a=everything else is draw.

Would be interesting to see the values of the new "Apple" CPU.

Rumor is that it's like having an i5 processor - might bench about 50% greater than the 6s or 6s+.

Re: Komodo strikes first at the TCEC Superfinal

If Komodo finds a way to way this, I will be truly impressed. Now you can ADMIT that you are impressed ! :D I'd left when Stockfish was +3 up and when I came on later, it was a DRAW :shock: What I can't figure out is whether SF made a mistake or did Komodo do a Houdini to escape ?? YES! Games 1, 8,...
