I see a margin of one and a half points on the final chart. Why are you trying to make Komodo look bad by saying it only won by one point? :)

Yes, we won by a margin of 1.5 points!

Re: Houdini 3 vs Komodo 6 vs Stockfish 021113

I have noticed that self-testing inflates the ELO gain a little, but I have never seen anything more than minor inflation - you are saying 3-fold as LOWER BOUND? That is fantastically unbelievable. I would like to see a real world test that is statistically valid to back that one up. 100 elo self-t...

Re: komodo wins stage 3

By one point. I see one and a half :) I am impressed by Komodo play I have to say. Two stages in a row by big margin and many beautiful games along the way. I heard that Robert Houdart has added over 50 ELO which means it's almost a sure thing. The version playing in stage 3 was supposedly already ...

Re: komodo wins stage 3

Interesting numbers. - Nevertheless, I do not doubt that Houdini will win the superfinal, as ususal. But the path to it will be exiting! I the last nTCEC Houdini won against Stockfish 25-23 in the Superfinal. Now there is a 70+ points stronger Stockfish, and a multicore Komodo. Houdini dev. is impr...

Re: Houdini 3 vs Komodo 6 vs Stockfish 021113

Obviously the hundreds of Elo is your exaggeration. Their regression testing showed Stockfish 4 to be 87.5 Elo above Stockfish 2.3.1. The latest regression test had the developmental version +59.73 Elo over Stockfish 4. So, Stockfish is approximately 147 Elo ahead of version 2.3.1 according to the ...

Re: komodo wins stage 3

Komodo on fire! Everybody out of the way! I propose a namechange. How about a special version, that has tablebases maybe and Don could call it 'nTCEC Rex' or 'Tablebase Rex' or more simply 'Rex'. Didn't Don and Larry release a "Rex" years ago? Yes, they had a commercial engine named RexChess . We a...

Re: komodo wins stage 3

Congratulations and best wishes for the next stage. :) Yeah, Houdini will come into its own in the Final stage...then Komodo will certainly need all your best wishes :P Yes, I am expecting Houdini to come on strong for stage 4. I heard that Robert Houdart has added over 50 ELO which means it's almo...

Re: nTCEC simulation

Results after game 87, Bouquet vs Komodo won by Komodo: Next season I will sort this a bit more intelligently. But we can see who WON'T make it, and the 5 that WILL make it for sure. So with high probably Naum is going to be in. Name Win Odds Stage 4 --------- ---------- ---------- Komodo 100.000 10...
