Stockfish is the winner of TCEC Season 6 – Stage 3, Houdini, Komodo and Critter also qualify

stockfish-4Stockfish 4, modification 080414, claims TCEC Season 6 – Stage 3 with the impressive score of 21.5/28 points.

Houdini 4 and Komodo 1217 expectedly move on as well with equal points – 18.5/28. Fourth place goes to Critter 1.6a who is the last to join TCEC Season 6 – Stage 4.

Thus, Stage 4 will consist of Stockfish 4, Houdini 4, Komodo 1217 and Critter 1.6a. It is a hexadeca round robin where only the top 2 will qualify to play the Superfinal, while the other engines are out of TCEC for the current Season.

After Stage 4 has finished the top 2 engines will meet in a Superfinal of 64 games. It will be interesting to see whether the last-year’s Superfinalists Stockfish and Komodo will reach the final again or if Houdini and Critter will spoil their plans.
