Stockfish 140119 vs. Komodo TCEC - Match 5Min + 3Secs

While waiting for the the next TCEC tournament coming in a few weeks, I just made use of the idle time to test whether Komodo TCEC does better in longer time control of 5 minutes + 3 seconds compared to the 1 minute base + 1 second limit in my normal rating list production.
The time control chosen was suggested by Larry Kaufman to be a better one for chess engines to "think" properly.

The result of the match showed that Komodo TCEC scored 41 points from 100 games which is 3 points better than the last match. It may just be another random number but it also confirmed that Stockfish is stronger than Komodo at least in blitz time control.

Here is the match statistics:
