Re: Game 41 - third successive win for SF and lead is now 8-

Exciting stuff, many thanks to you for the commentary, and to Ray for running this.

Re: Game 41 - third successive win for SF and lead is now 8-

GAME 41 - Stockfish completes a hat-trick with its third successive win.

Re: SPCC: Testrun of Stockfish 141117 finished

Could be because of your used SALC openingsbook. Perhaps latest SFdevs could be improved especially in the field of opposite castling situations. Just my wild guess. I doubt that. If the SALC-set is the reason, then why only against Houdini and Komodo a very big gain and against Gull and Equinox no...
