I change my prediction to 4-1 for Stockfish. 3 wins and 2 draws. :) :) :D
Match over, 4.5-2.5 as I predicted as likely.

4. ........d5?? hard to believe(shocking) Lco did like that. It is against opening principle,

1. Dont open the centre when your development is delayed!

There were several errors but note in particular 11. .. O-O?



This is a fine example of "castling into it."

Lco would probably be on par with Komodo and Houdini( She won 1v1 on Komodo in cccc).She is already somewhere between top 2- 4. Her score 4.5-2.5 means , -100 elo, you will get similar result between SF vs K or H.

Why Stockfish is so strong?. Let us estimate the inveatment in SF project from fishtest data alone from 5 years ago. More than 1 billion games have been tested, 30,000+ patches, and

1400 years of CPU years of computing power have been used.( It means if you run 1 ghz cpu for 1 core computer, you will need 1400 years to complete these tests).

For estimate of electricity usage alone( not to mention hardware cost and human resources), I estimated that $ 4,000,000( 4 million have been spent in Stockfish project).( I estimate 1 core computer , 60 W, cost- 10 cents per day).

Yes, a long way to spend 4 million dollars.

How do you get $4M? 1400 years is 1400*365*24 hours, so you'd use 1400*365*24*60/1000 kWh. A kWh costs around 15 cents (depends where you live). I get about $110k.
