Of course we have to wait for the final outcome but currently there is little hard evidence to back up the general perception here that Houdini is now somehow "much stronger" than Komodo.
Correct the signs, to be pedantic .

Dyslexia... (W-L)/sqrt(W+L).
Ideas=science. Simplification=engineering.
Without ideas there is nothing to simplify.

Have any of the people lecturing the world on "correct statistics" even looked at the bleeping games???
IMO, Houdini has a clear 'pull' over Komodo in the middle-game, and is generally the one with winning chances. Combine that with the current score and - yea - I'd call it a 'thrashing.'
All people who never believed in stats will learn the hard way in the TCEC final.
Komodo soon at 3:7 =42 and being the first to win with Black!
100 games are simply nothing between equally strong programs.

They will learn?

This is a pattern that will keep repeating. Engines are judged by their last game only.

Didn't realise I was dyslexic until I went to a toga party dressed as a goat.

What does an agnostic dyslexic insomniac do?
He lays awake at night, wondering if there is a dog.

P.S.
I also am dyslexic
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

Nice one.
I'm not dyslexic, but have a lot of experience teaching those with it.
