Re: World Chess Computer Champion?

And I would add that in American Football and Baseball, which are national events, the season winner is called "World Champion".

Stockfish Syzygy Endgame

[d]8/1k6/8/Q7/7p/6p1/6pr/6Kb w[/d]

Strangely in the above diagram, Stockfish Syzygy cannot found the winning move Qc5 (only considers the draw with Qb6+) when the regular Stockfish finds the good move in a few seconds.
Any reason for this behavior?

Thanks anyway for providing a stronger compile

Re: TCEC Stage 3 (Season 2) has started with Houdini dev ver

Thanks Martin for running this tournament ! I think (but you already know it ;-) ) that allowing engines to upgrade between stages is really a plus for TCEC, considering also that is a very long one and so is not easy to keep people interested without throwing new stuff at them. I'd just want to in...
