The Big 3 Grandmonsters + Fried Shark Rumble - 100 Rounds 1M+1S

This is another post to have an overview on the current relative strength of the Big 3 Grandmonsters namely: Stockfish, Komodo and Houdini with guest Fried Shark added. The latest version of Stockfish 14110619 was dated November 6, 2014 which is the reference point of the competition.

The previous posts were 2 gauntlet matches of 100 rounds each, this time it is a round robin of 100 games which is split into 2 parts at 50 games each so that it will be finished in time for posting.  The computers used were 2 AMD Quad Core computers with almost identical configuration. These were the same ones used in the previous tournaments. Time control is the same 1 minute base + 1 second increment.

The result showed identical position of rankings in both tournaments with the following order: Fried Shark 141106, Houdini 4, Stockfish 14110619 and Komodo 8. It is a surprise that the latest Stockfish 14110619 is in the 3rd place though it does not mean that there is regression. Houdini comes strong in second place while Komodo is at the tail this time. The possible cause of the scrambled ranking is maybe due to the random effects of global warming.

Here is the combined result of the tournament with raw ELO rating:

   # PLAYER                                :  RATING    POINTS  PLAYED    (%)
   1 Fried Shark 141106 x64    :   29.13       166.5       300        55.5%
   2 Houdini 4 Pro x64               :   11.46       156.5       300        52.2%
   3 Stockfish 14110619 x64    :   -4.39        147.5       300        49.2%
   4 Komodo 8 x64                     :  -36.21       129.5       300        43.2%
