Komodo increases the lead after 7 round of TCEC

Stage 2 of Top Chess Engine Championship (aka TCEC) – the strongest double round robin chess championship in history – is now past round 7. TCEC’s champion from last year has already built a full point ahead of it’s closest competitor Houdini and 1,5 points ahead of the highest rated opponents Stockfish, Andscacs, Fire, and Jonny.

Komodo has four victories. However, all these full points come against opponents from the bottom of the table. The serious challenge for “The Dragon” will come in the next rounds where it has to face Gull, Rybka, Jonny. On the other hand, the other finalist from last year Stockfish has Vajolet, Fire and Raptor in the next three rounds, with a good chance to shorten the distance. Follow the games live here

A total of eight positions give the right to qualify for next stage. Things will be hot until the very end, as the difference between the 8th position and the last position is just a point.
