Re: Houdini with a six point lead near the halfway point of

No attacks on Mark, to the contrary his 8% number is the only verifiable one at the moment. Do you realise the 23% number comes from him? And do you understand how he got to that number? (Hint: not by "extrapolating" the 8% number.) No 23% number doesn't come form him, you invented that. I cannot h...

Re: TCEC 10

Almost 11-4 right now in favor of Houdini. This is getting painful to watch. Komodo is quite a good Engine and doesn't deserve this humiliation, just because of wrong Contempt Settings. At what stage will the TCEC guys put Komodo out of its misery ? The same stage they put Houdini out of its misery...

Re: TCEC 10

Stockfish is first engine, which goes WHOLE season UNBEATEN!! No word on that in chessdom page? Let's compare. Komodo goes undefeated in the chess.com speed championship but misses qualifying for the final by .5 points. This goes unreported in the chess.com website. No one cares. Stockfish goes und...

Re: TCEC 10

So I was right to hope for a Houdini / Komodo final this time. Now I would bet than Houdini is the slighty favorite here and says he will win with 52%. I think contempt helped Komodo a lot but might be a little less strong in head to head, even if Houdini is not update. But I might be wrong if the ...

Re: TCEC 10

There are two donation links. A chessdom paypal one on the front page and a twitch one linked to in chat now and again. To the organisers or anybody else that knows: which is preferred, if any? I did ask in the chat but if there was a reply I missed it. I am enjoying watching very much (first time)...

This is all part of the complex scam that goes 600 levels deep. Even Stockfish is part of it.
