This was a preliminary test whether a new engine or version is eligible for the Owl Rating List publication. DON 1.0 300514 was pitted against itself with the older version 140210 in the 100 rounds match at the tournament time control of 1 minute base + 1 second increment. The result showed that it lost to its older version with the score of 45.5-54.5, so therefore it does not qualify for publication. This should serve notice to all engine developers to make sure that their latest creation is better than the previous ones, otherwise it will just be a garbage in the rating list. It would be better to just keep them in their own own private testing to improve it before releasing to the public.
Here is the performance statistics of DON 1.0 300514:
