Re: For how long will Stockfish be competitive versus the best NN ?

This is Stockfish-Komodo with black and white reversed, isn't it ?

Re: Crystal Update

Crystal is intended for analysis, but could some testers include it in their rating lists ?

Re: Minic version 2

Small sample size is very real. The eexpected elo of these two version is close, you need a few thousand games to get a decent likelihood of superiority.
