Poor Williams. That's an enormous handicap to overcome. Human inferiority is simply too obvious.

Final score 2 to 2, same as last match. Looks like we're finally figuring out what are fair odds for various opponents. Komodo still hasn't lost a single game at Exchange odds, Exchange and move odds, pawn (f7) and move, pawn (f7) and two moves, or two pawns including a2 pawn. The only losses have been to GMs at pawn (f7) and three moves, and at two good pawns (c2 and f2), plus knight odds games with FMs.

Most impressive. If I recall correctly, Komodo is also undefeated at knight for pawn (and move), right?

Correct. Also undefeated at king in center odds and six move odds. I only included the handicaps we have given to grandmasters. I count 26 games against GMs at all handicaps except f7 and three moves or c2 plus f2, with no losses in those 26 games, with 12 wins and 14 draws.
Komodo rules!
