For technical reason the second half of the match (on the MdP suite #2) will be run as a separate match, with TC 60'+15". A new thread will go up once the first 10 rounds are completed. This match is therefore declared ended in a tie after 100 games.

Komodo must be commended for saving the match by dint of inhuman (reptilian? ;) effort and scoring the only two wins of the last 10 rounds. The fight was a lot closer than in the KID Fianchetto match; it does seem like the longer TC benefits it more than Houdini. Perhaps it's worth replaying the Fianchetto match at 60m base time?

All games as PGN: Filedropper or Mediafire

Hi T. Poppins,

Indeed a very close match, no engine managed to get a clear lead. All in all I think 50-50 is a fair result.

Instead of replaying the Fianchetto match I propose to finish with the KI Samisch testset. I expect a lot of interesting games in such a match!

Thanks once again for playing these matches :D
