The Big 3 Grandmonsters + Orka - Super Fast Blitz

This is an exploratory tournament using the Super Fast Blitz time control  at 10 seconds base + 100 milliseconds increment to have an idea who rules this particular segment. The participants are the 3 strongest chess engines known to mankind at this point in time plus a guest clown named Orka for entertainment in a 300 games round robin tournament.

The result showed that without Orka, Houdini 4 is the King of this Super Fast Blitz beating Stockfish 14113021 and Komodo 8. Stockfish, currently the strongest in most rating lists and beats Orka all the time could not claim the crown, while Komodo 8 is in last position with huge deficit which confirms the authors claim that it is best for long time controls.
