Komodo continues to lead the Top Chess Engine Championship – the strongest double round robin by ELO in history. After nine rounds “The Dragon” is sole leader with 7,0/9. Houdini is the closest competitor, while Andscacs and Jonny share third with 5,5/9.
Stockfish, playing with version 110616, is the second highest rated engine in the field. It has a game less than Komodo and 5,0/8. It is a Stockfish day today at TCEC, as the engine has back to back games this afternoon. In both games Stockfish has black. The first one is vs Fire 5, the second vs Raptor.
