A 12 games match is meaningless, you can't draw any conclusion from that.

Yet, it's always enough to claim "SF is the best"... :mrgreen: :roll:

I guess you are kidding, but if you don't: all the serious rating lists groups and testers agree that SF is the best by FAR.

Also, TCEC Seasons 11, 12 and 13 were won by SF clearly and it won 14's Premier division easily.

But seriously here SF has +5,99 score and draw:

[D]2Rb1r1k/3P4/p7/4P2p/5P1P/3R4/4r1P1/7K w - - 2 66

Something to 7 piece syzygy?

It was an 8 games match, as they drew, 4 more games were played. This is the TCEC KO format tournament, this happened in the semifinals.
