Hard endgame

For the exchange black got a pawn + double pawns for white. Also the knight is well placed.

Re: Locock Gambit

The opening is slightly worse than the cochrane. Nevertheless the middlegame complications turn out to be interesting.

Re: ChessMaster:Worlds Greatest Chess Program Or Corrupt Criminal Enterprise?

CM 9000 is already too strong for Nakamura in latest hardware, that's why you'd want to use a handicap so the human starts with an advantage. But then you want the strongest engine in the fastest hardware, and just adjust the handicap accordingly. CM 9000 on relatively old hardware. Let say 10 year...

Re: ChessMaster:Worlds Greatest Chess Program Or Corrupt Criminal Enterprise?

At this point the most entertaining thing about those things is the commentary and reactions of the player, more than the games themselves.

Re: Next Komodo vs human match

I don't know if it's feasible but many will enjoy a revamp if Chessmaster face some strong GMs without odds. Or even using some of the grandmaster personalities available from selection. Chessmaster can give time odds i suppose.

Re: Which version of Komodo is the strongest, at long time control ?

I know Fritz GUI support extra time for white. So it's possible to test time handicap with regular Komodo up against Komodo Monte Carlo Larry.
