PostPost subject: Return Match for Komodo    Posted: Wed Jul 27, 2016 1:23 am Reply to topic Reply with quote

About a year ago, Komodo played its first handicap match with a GM, namely Petr Neuman (current FIDE 2446, born 1978), giving two pawns handicap (c2 and f2). Komodo lost badly, getting just two draws and three losses in five games. Fortunately I didn't get discouraged by that result, and since then we have played 52 games giving handicaps to GMs with only a single loss, to Simon Williams at the excessive handicap of f7 pawn and three moves. Twelve of these were at two pawns handicap (various pawns) with the result six wins for Komodo and six draws. So the question arises, how is it that one player, the second-lowest rated GM to play Komodo, won three games without a loss while no other GM could win a single game with two extra pawns?
We have decided to try to answer this question by giving Neuman a rematch, just as proposed in this forum by Kai, with the choice of the two pawns to be the same as in our latest match with Erenburg, namely e2 every game, plus b2,c2,d2, and f2 once each. If he wins or even draws the match, it would suggest that his technique in winning a won game is much better than his rating would imply. If he loses, especially by more than one game, it would indicate that his initial success was due to any or all of the following factors:
1. He learned from each game how to win at that specific handicap, which didn't change.
2. The specific c2,f2 handicap is much larger than other two pawn handicaps.
3. We introduced Contempt after this match.
4. Komodo has improved in the last year.

The match is set for Aug.1 and 2 at 11a.m. Eastern Daylight Time and 2 p.m. EDT each day. It will take place in the Czech Republic with our webmaster Jesse Gersenson operating, connected remotely to my 24 core machine. Time limit is the usual 45' + 15". Broadcast will be from our site with the moves also being shown (without commentary this time) on chess.com. More details about the broadcast closer to match time.
