In the first game, it looked like the game was petering out to a draw with both engines moving pieces back and forth not making any progress. But then out of the blue, 94. Rxg4!!! was an amazing move. the point is after fxg4 then Qh2-h4 and Bd1xg4 with mobile pawns and active pieces. I've had many games where komodo has sacrificed for positional reasons. I hope no one thinks komodo is boring! komodo 9.0 has clearly made great strides.

In the second game it was Komodo who was defending after Houdini made an interesting sacrifice 23. Bxh6. Komodo thought it was fine for the most part but its evaluation started to give white a little compensation. But to defend the most solidly, komodo played the defensive exchange sacrifice 32...Rxe4! eliminating the crucial dangerous bishop. Then after 37...Qxg4 38. Rxf7+ Kg8 39. Qa8+ Kxf7 40. hxg4 Komodo clearly had a good understanding of piece imbalances because it saw a drawn game the rest of the game, while houdini kept thinking it was better.

These were very interesting games. I'm not going to promise that komodo will sacrifice every game, and if it did it would probably lose. However, it has shown an ability to sacrifice pawns for a lead in development with the black king in the center, and it has shown many positional exchange sacrifices which give positional compensation to komodo. So I think Komodo 9.0 has made a dramatic inmprovement in the style of the engine, when I always used to think komodo 8 and prior were boring.

Hope you enjoyed and let me known if you have any questions about the games.

Sincerely,

Tim.

Stockfish 6 is the only one that saw it besides Rxg4 at depth 33.

Yes, I was interested to check and see if stockfish would see it. And it did after several seconds. But houdini completely missed it. And what makes it interesting is that it's not easy to calculate it to a proper conclusion, but rather it is a positional gamble that worked out. Even Komodo's own evaluation didn't show a high score with Rxg4 until several moves later. So in a sense it specuated wit a sacrifice not knowing a concrete win (since it's evaluation was only slightly positive for white).

That's pretty interesting.

Tim.

It seemed like Houdini in its eval of the position would ponder for a second or 2 on Rxg4 but then it would go on. I bet it would find it if you gave it enough time. I have an i7 and it's a slim design so cooling is not so great so I can not really analyze the position for lengthy periods of time.

I just installed Vitruvius 1.11_HEM and it finds it instantly! Interestingly this engine was made with this type of sacrificing in mind.

This is off it's homepage:

"Vitruvius is built on the skeleton structure of the free Ippolit programs (RobboLito, Igorrit, IvanHoe) from which it inherits certain caracteristics and pecularties. It is however a chess engine in its own right exhibiting a very original style of play with a highly speculative tendency. Thanks to its finely tuned positional vision, Vitruvius shows a readiness to sacrifice a pawn or two, the exchange and sometimes even a whole piece, for purely positional compensation."

So it's not at all surprising that it chooses the sac.

But the engine also needs to avoid such sacs when they lose. :wink:

True, there is always a price to pay if you don't heed all the complications when looking at some type of compensation.

The interesting thing is how frequently Komodo uses its superior imbalance evaluation to perform well against engines clueless in this field.

You would say imbalances occur relatively rarely, but obviously this is not so. You play what you know and any strong point in an engine's play might gain much strength, no matter that the specific feature might seem rare.

If you know imbalances well, you can play imbalances every 4th game, or even every second game.
Same with other salient features.

Look also at this position from the first game:

[d]r5r1/1pq3pk/p4n1p/P1Pp1p1P/1P1RpP2/4P1P1/3Q2K1/3B3R b - - 6 76

still, early into the mg, no winning captures, no apparent tactical lines, no mates, a relatively quiet position, where search does not help much and engines should also significantly rely on their eval.

Houdini gives here 0.0 score, Komodo 50cps white advantage, while for me it is obvious white has at least 100-150cps advantage in terms of eval at the root.

Look how much superior Komodo's eval than Houdini's is. Same goes true for SF, its eval is also far superior than Houdini's.

So that everybody says search is the only thing or the most important thing that matters for engines, but this is not so - without good eval most of the lines you will be searching will be random, and you will be picking the wrong lines.

Good to see engines make progress also in the field of eval.

Was curious what Stockfish would show with a deep search of the key position:
[D]3r3k/1pr2qp1/p6p/P1Pp1p1P/BP1RpPnR/4P1P1/3Q4/6K1 w - - 41 94

Stockfish finds the exchange sac at depth 32:

The evaluation gets as high as 68 centipawns in favor of White:

White won the game, but I'm certainly not convinced there is a win here for White, with best play by Black.

Will wait for Lyudmil T. to arrive and present his assessment, but I'm not inclined to criticize Houdini's evaluation just yet. :wink:

Yes, I was interested to check and see if stockfish would see it.

That's pretty interesting.

Sincerely,

Was curious what Stockfish would show with a deep search of the key position:
[D]3r3k/1pr2qp1/p6p/P1Pp1p1P/BP1RpPnR/4P1P1/3Q4/6K1 w - - 41 94

Stockfish finds the exchange sac at depth 32:

Most of the strongest engines evaluate it as = which i agree with. Position looks pretty locked up to me and neither side can really make any significant inroad to victory.
