Then how would Hiarcs win?
Hiarcs first eats pawns h4 and a4.

I would (almost) say congrats to Komodo for they will win this tournament.
Komodo makes the least blunders.

Looks like HIARCS is losing its way around move 75 of this ending, allowing the black king to infiltrate the queenside. Jonny's massive search depths are going to decide the game and the championship!

Maybe Hiarcs was paid to make blunders in the end. 81. g4??

I think the operator just enabled the Hiarcs fools mode.

Hiarcs played this end game very bad.

Also instead of 66. Kf2 play Kh2 and attack the h pawn with the king.

Rather than hold the queenside Hiarcs went pawn hunting. By the time g4 was played the game was totally lost.

77.Nc7??
