Hiarcs continues dominating the second stage of the top computer chess championship TCEC. Hiarcs is clear first with 5,0/7, despite losing it’s 7th round game against Stage 1 winner Bouquet.

The chasing pack used the opportunity to catch up with the leader. Stockfish needed only 55 moves to defeat Naum, while Komodo won a 144 moves thriller against Critter. It was Gull that missed to join the leader, after drawing with Shredder. Stockfish, Komodo, Gull now share the second position with 4,5/7, and Stockfish has a direct match with white against Harcs in the next round.

The top seeded Houdini won against Junior, but still cannot lift off and shares 9th-11th with Rybka and Naum. Watch the live games here / Visit the official website
