Re: YLCET Super X2 Live Super finals announcment

Yes. The YLCET Super X2 (Season 2) is almost finished with SF and Komodo leading the way as the top 2 engines. Komodo has a 1.5 point lead over Houdini 6.0.3.

Re: YLCET Super X1 Live Games - Updates

Ok, I'm not going to argue. If this behaviour is OK for the SF team then it's not a problem. But now I know not to trust SF's eval now, even if it is showing it's up almost +7.00

Re: YLCET Super X1 Live Games - Updates

What a game we just had in round 17.1 with SF against H. SF had a steady eval of +5.00 to +6.50 and it totally blew it! This has to be some bug! Someone at SF really needs to take a close look at this game. It's been a LONG time since I've seen SF lead by +6.00 and could not convert! See for yoursel...

Re: YLCET Super X1 Live Broadcast Announcement!

H scored its second win over K After the bad move 27 ..Be7 black looses. Theory and best move here is Qe7 as can be found in the chessbase livebook When I feed the position after Be7?! 28 f4! after 2-3 minutes thinking on my AMD Ryzen 14threads Komodo gives +0.45 Houdini 6 +1,09 and Stockfish 9 + 1...
