While surprises are to be expected the first match started with a boom, work to do for Komodo team.

Stockfish 7 (3355) vs Komodo 9.42 (3345) 243.0 - 157.0 (60.8%) TPR +76

Next match Komodo 9.42 (3345) vs Andscacs 0.921 (3203) now running with live support.

The ELO gap of 142 is considerable.

Why not use current versions which may have improved in this area?
