My only real problem - do you even have the SAME Stockfish that played in TCEC (?)...and I know at least Komodo is now at 11.1 vs it's...I guess it was a 10.4 in the last TCEC? I wish you had asked team Stockfish and team Komodo for their 'best' developmental versions....Even Houdini if one is in existence.

Hi Graham,

what OS and what exact Version of ChessGUI do you use?
And had you ever some Problems with Junior Yokohama or Equinox with this configuration?

Regards
Andi

No problems with either Deep Junior or Equinox, except a rare time loss now and then from Equinox.
I'm using Win7 Pro on this computer.
ChessGUI 0.245m.

I've chosen not to go with developmental versions this time.
I sometimes use them in head to head matches.

Right, but my point is that, say Komodo 11.1 is a slight improvement over the official (lets count those as rounded numbers) while SF 8...there are better versions which have been tested (slight, like Komodo 11 vs 11.1) but better.

I wish Graham would ask all sides to provide their best current version.
