Hello everyone,

The Komodo Chess Engine leads Stage 4 of the strongest computer chess championship TCEC. Komodo has collected 3,5/5, half a point ahead of Houdini and Stockfish. With two victories, three draws, and zero losses, Komodo continues its fantastic performance confirming his victory from Stage 2 of TCEC, and the dominance on the board at Stage 3.

This is just round 5 of 18, so anything can happen to the end. Stage 1 winner Boquet is sharing 4th-5th position with the updated Naum. They have 2,0/5, half a point more than the 6th placed Gull.

Stockfish and Bouquet played the amazing 227 moves thriller, you can replay the game with Chess King.

Stage 4 consists of the 6 engines that qualified from Stage 3 – Komodo, Bouquet, Houdini, Stockfish, Gull, and Naum 4.6. The competition is a hexa round robin and the top 2 engines will qualify to play the Superfinal. (Report via
