2nd. Komodo 1692.19 (53 ""
3rd. Stockfish 030916 (52 ""
The TCEC Rapid event was won convincingly by the outsider (in many peoples opinion) Houdini, in fact the favourite Stockfish known for its strength in rapid play was a very
disappointing 3rd, even finishing behind a revamped Komodo.
The TCEC Superfinal between Houdini and Stockfish may no longer be the one sided event some people were expecting it to be?! Both Houdini and Stocfish will of course be using
different settings and updates for the final so that may alter matters. If the Komodo team had used different settings in the Stage 3 event it’s own results may have been better, but
I think many underestimated the power of the new H5 dev.
Should be a great final when it gets underway, and I understand the new Houdini 5 will be available for purchase sometime between Nov3rd/11th, I for one cannot wait to get it.
