Re: World Computer Chess Championship 2015

Besides operator, isn't Erdo the book creator of Komodo a well?

Because Jonny won from Komodo it has a better SBgr score ?
No play-off like in the blitz tournament?

High hopes for Shredder!

(indeed, all shredders piece are poised for attack to Komodos kingside. But it's komodo we're talking about here.)
Move 15, 16 and 17 and the attack went down the drain. Still a good chance to draw tough.

No it would not as the result would be the same.

Re: World Computer Chess Championship 2015

So today Komodo gets the first draw. Blocked positions seem to be a major topic this championship. Not really a draw after all. Congrats to Jonny. Why did Komodo go for the "a" pawn?? Horrible idea. My first impression is that either contempt was used or that the bonus for a passed pawn was too high.
