Re: How to find komodo's handicap matches

I found a solution for the problem and it seems that searching for the opponent games is good enough to find all the games

How do they get the number for elo estimate of chess engines?

Re: Zenmastur vs Ovyron No it's not another GROB II!

You said that you couldn't live with yourself if you couldn't win a won game. So, what are you going to do if it turns out that f4 was a blunder or a mistake that put you so close to the edge that any inaccuracy will allow a draw? First tell me what you would do if I win?
