Ray's near-win. He was three pawns up after 31 moves.

Are these games on Youtube ?

No, just on chess.com archive. I'm thinking maybe we need to go to 15' + 10" for future matches, the time limit used in the latest World Rapid Chess Championship, so that if the time ever comes that we can draw or even beat GMs at knight odds, we can say that it was at Rapid with no question of the term or we could call it the World Rapid time-limit. I'm sure Ray would have done better at that time limit.
Komodo rules!

I miss the yearly Lyudmil Tsvetkov-Stockfish match. For he was telling us Stockfish played worse than himself.

Might be he quit with computer chess. I don't know.

So now I can't compare strength of current engines against humans.

If we continue this weekly series, it will be very easy to compare engines with humans. I think I'll play against Komodo myself this coming Wednesday. While I'm no longer as strong a player as my son, I may know more about how to play against engines.
Komodo rules!
