ClassicAra takes the sole lead after R8

ClassicAra continues to impress at TCEC S21 QL. After eight rounds ClassicAra is still undefeated with 6 wins and 2 draws. The only engine that stopped ClassicAra’s rampage is the other revelation of QL – Koivisto. In an interesting and imbalanced Queen’s Indian, where white possibly missed a decisive chance, the two engines finished with a 202 moves draw – replay the game here
