{The Superfinal of the Top Chess Engine Championship TCEC is going to take
place Nov 6 – Dec 1, 2015. Komodo and Stockfish will clash for the highest
computer chess title in what is going to be the strongest chess match in
history. Both engines boast ELO of over 3200 and each will come with its best
and strongest modification for the event. Komodo, the reigning TCEC champion,
had a smooth way to the final. It won Stage 1a, then easily cruised through
Stage 2, and now has won Stage 3 as well. Stockfish was merciless in Stage 1b
starting with 11,0/11, performed well in Stage 2, and would have been very
close to Komodo in Stage 3 had it not encountered a minor bug that made it
lose 1,5 points before the organizing committee intervened As a result, the
two strongest chess engines are now at the Superfinal and after one hundred
Komodo vs Stockfish games the new computer chess champion will be crowned.
Starting November 6th, follow the strongest chess match in history live at the
official website The TCEC Superfinal rules The final match consists of 100
