Re: Larry Kaufman

Larry has added another success to his career. Dragon Komodo won the First TCEC Swiss Tournament. Congrats to Komodo Team (Mark and Larry) https://wiki.chessdom.org/TCEC_Swiss_1 Those who say 22 games less should not forget that the world chess champion is determined by 12 games. Wow. Nice to be on...
