My point is that this is pretty powerful evidence that Komodo scales better than Houdini 1.5, I don't know the precise level where it becomes superior but one would have to bury his head in the sand and ignore all data to believe that this is not the logical conclusion.

Why it has to become superior? Your thinking is like more time = better moves. You then extrapolate those better moves to be the best (perfect?) at some LTC.

I understand the trend, witch I see as a fact, is because more time = less blunders. By having more time is possible to make less mistakes, find some difficult to find answer to escape into a draw in a very complex position. The trend you see probably is just because komodo is losing less games (not winning more).

It can be said that less errors is the same that better move, but I'm meaning other thing: With better moves you can gain initiative and games, with less errors you can equalize or save some games.

 Don wrote: It seems oddly illogical to think that the trend will suddenly reverse or stop - do you have some sound basis for thinking that is likely or are you just saying that anything is possible, even when there is no supporting evidence we can identify? I am willing to entertain any good theories you have on this and maybe they can even be tested.
