TCEC overview

Post by Jouni » Sun Dec 31, 2017 2:58 pm

3 time controls:

Stockfish 1. 2. 3.
Komodo 1. 2. 3.
Houdini 1. 2. 3.

Fire 4. 4. 4.

So we didn't get any idea which one is currently strongest!

We did get a pretty good idea that all three are really close in strength.

Does Stockfish still have the drawing problem?

Even though I seem to hope for Komodo the most, I would admit that Blitz is hardly much value in chess itself.
The value to my mind, of komodo winning the blitz, only just, is that each one had its turn to win.
