Will be interesting to see which ones get demoted. It's super tight in that range. The big 3 are far far ahead of the rest.

More interesting is of course which two will qualify for the final! :mrgreen:

Relegated will be Fizbo and either Ginkgo or Chiron.

And is it my imagination....or is the same Komodo Dev version that played in the last TCEC playing here.

While SF 9 is playing?

Komodo is a new dev.
SF9 is not playing, it's the latest dev.

Thanks.
I guess the SF 9 Dev version playing is thought to be slightly better than SF9.

I think we all wish Team Komodo would release ONE of these Dev versions...but I'm giving up hope.

Actually, I don't think we have seen anything from Larry or Mark in some time on talkchess...

Hopefully Ginkgo.

Komodo is leading Premier Division after it defeated Stockfish in the last game of the first round robin. Houdini (2nd) and Stockfish (3rd) are tied in points. Ginkgo and Fizbo are in the relegation zone at this moment. A new round robin is coming up with reversed pairs or the first one.

Standings after 7 rounds:

No. [Engine] Score (SB)
1. [Komodo 2012.00] 5.0/7 (16.25)
2. [Houdini 6.03] 4.5/7 (14.25)
3. [Stockfish 100218] 4.5/7 (13.25)
4. [Chiron 110218] 4.0/7 (12.75)
5. [Fire 020718] 3.5/7 (10.75)
6. [Andscacs 0.93] 3.0/7 (7.25)
7. [Ginkgo 2.03] 2.0/7 (6.75)
8. [Fizbo 2] 1.5/7 (5.75)
