Yet another crushing win for Komodo. Seems that Contempt and MCTS go very well together! We'll play another game beyond the scheduled four, I want to give him a chance to score.

Fantastic result, clearly ready for the next level!

What is the contempt value for this match?
Even with Komodo MCTS is recommended use half disadvantage points? (About 175 for knight odd)

Fifth game was closer, but again Komodo won. He wants to try one more time, so here goes number 6. He is playing at the proper pace for the time limit, that isn't the problem.

Sixth game was Gilden's best game, but ultimately yet another loss. He reached a normal opening position in the Caro-Kann with White just missing a knight, and it was difficult to imagine how Komodo would even make a fight of it. Komodo managed to trade queen for two rooks, but was still quite lost, but a surprise tactic won the extra knight and ultimately the game. So a perfect six to zero sweep. Clearly, we need a much stronger player or a longer time limit for knight odds to be competitive. It does seem that Komodo MCTS with Contempt (I set it to 150 for this match) is amazingly strong at giving such handicaps. I think we're still a ways off from giving knight odds at this TC to a 2500 GM, but it doesn't look so farfetched any more.
