Queen for two knights give human more prospects.

Match has been rescheduled for Aug 21-22. I'll probably have another match to announce for our own broadcast soon.

Larry

is there any possibility of implementing stockfish's persistent hash in a future edition of komodo ?

The rescheduled match is set for today (Monday) at 10 a.m. Pacific Time, 1 p.m. Eastern time, with the second round starting at 2 p.m. Pacific, 5 p.m. Eastern time. Games 3 and 4 same times on Tuesday. Match on chess.com/tv. I'm pessimistic after our 3 to zero shutout by Larry Gilden at normal knight odds; chess 960 knight odds is harder for us humans but Rensch is well over 200 elo higher rated than Gilden. We'll see.

Rensch is more interested in the article he will write for chess.com, rather than his match performance.

Maybe so, but he's probably not wanting to look for excuses for not winning games a piece ahead.

Is anti-human strategy/mode something Komodo team consider experiment with?

For example encourage Komodo to do more riskier moves when facing human opponent under the assumption that opponent do not find the best continuation. This applies in odds matches.

Well, high Contempt does this to some extent. We could try other ideas, but the only way to test them in statistically significant numbers is against other or crippled engines.
