Re: Komodo 7

My personal experience is that Komodo is useless for analysis (e.g. Freestyle games). I remember just one game where we got some benefit from Komodo usage. Golden standard for analysis is Stockfish + Houdini. Sometimes it is worth to use Gull.

Re: Komodo 7

Komodo is pretty good in unbalanced positions such as queen and knight against two rooks and knight etc. Anyway, there is serious weakness. Komodo is tactically completly blind. That is the reason why is Stockfish much better engine.

For me it is difficult to understand what is the sense of commercial engines at all. It makes sense if commercial engines are much stronger that free ones. But could someone tell me why should buy new commercial engine, when king of the hill is freeware Stockfish with almost everyday updates. OK, to...

Re: Maybe coming soon ! Maybe ?

Well, new Hiarcs needs at least 50 ELO points to get into TOP 10. But there is significant problém. Try to calculate Hiarcs ELO increase per year. The other engines improves much faster (Chiron, Protector, Blackmamba, Hannibal). Senpai will improve dramatically (Fabien is very talented). Stockfish, ...

Re: Nice effort by Gull 3.0

In my tests I got similar results. New Gull 3 seems slightly stronger than Komodo TCEC and somewhat weaker than Houdini 4 and Stockfish.
