Final score 3.5 to 0.5. John drew only game 3, the d7 game, which I thought would be the most favorable for him. Although he acknowledges that Komodo is too strong for him to win a match at this handicap, he is still confident that he could win four to zero at knight odds. I don't believe that myself, but I do believe he would win such a match. He'll ask his brother about a possible match; his brother (Eugene) is an IM and rated about 240 elo higher USCF (they don't play FIDE rated games anymore).

congratulation to you and the komodo team for such a strong performance.

how do you think komodo against john would do with exchanging 2 rooks for either 2 knights or 2 bishops. ?

same as a knight with 4 point advantage. but more imbalanced.

would komodo have found giving up 3 pawns tougher ?
