CCCC rounds 28, 29, 30 and 31. Leela draws Stockfish and wins in drawn position again!




 It seems Leela is hiding something that is beyond us. How else can be explained that after Fizbo a 3325 CCRL Elo engine with endgame tablebases in a dead 4-men position lost to Leela, now Leela in another dead draw position made Xiphos, a 3200 CCRL Elo engines, to lose!
At round 29 there was the first loss in this tournament of one of the big 3, as Houdini with black lost to Ethereal!


ROUND 28
Andscacs lost to Stockfish and lost ground for the battle of 8th place but Ethereal and Booot lost to Komodo and Leela respectively so they did not took advantage of it so things remained the same.
Fire won against Ivanhoe so now it has a comfortable place inside top 8.

 Leela playing with Booot a French defense(what else?) opening, she took a very easy win by playing simple Chess. She initially pushed all her Pawns, h4,f4,g4, in from of the castled King gaining all the space in Kingside and first thoughts were that she is planning an attack. But suddenly she forced the
exchange of Queens getting a huge Knight on d6 and from then on some almost forced trades have been made going to an endgame that as it seems it was almost lost for black since its King was too far away and white had a 3-2 Pawn majority on Queenside.

ROUND 29
Andscacs had a draw with Shredder and Stockfish won so after Komodo drew with Booot and Houdini lost, now Stockfish goes to the natural position of it, to the top!
So Houdini with black lost to Ethereal in a very interesting game, another French defense that had Houdini giving its Rook for a Knight for keeping white's King in the center. It was a clever idea and Ethereal had to defend well after that, to secure his King. And Ethereal did defend excellently forcing the exchange of the Queens so his King felt more safe. After that Ethereal had a double Rooks + double Bishops + 3 Pawns against Rook + 2 Knights + Bishop + 5 Pawns of black. An interesting imbalance that Ethereal won masterfully because of the power of the double Rooks.
A very nice game to watch. So now only Komodo and Stockfish remain undefeated.

Leela with black against Xiphos was another crazy circus game because of how it ended. In a surprisingly peaceful Sicilian with 4.Qxd4, many exchanges happened early and by move 25 it was already seemed draw was unavoidable. Queens got exchanged too, with Xiphos preferring to give a Rook for a Bishop and a Pawn. A very safe move though, since the position was uncrackable by black and a dead draw.
Engines shuffled pointlessly and 50 move rule with a draw was approaching. But 5 moves before 50 move rule would declare as draw the game, Xiphos made a huge blunder giving a check that allowed the black King to invade into white's position. Actually white would still hold the black King away, had not been a Rook move that caused a zugzwang situation that allowed its King to penetrate. Leela after the mistake won on the spot. It's really inexplicable how Xiphos fell to that mistake. Was this a graph history interaction(GHI) issue? Was this a bug in Xiphos with 50 move rule or zugzwang detection? Its author will have to find out, even though with multithreading search reproducibility is never easy.

ROUND 30
Andscacs got closer to top 8 since it won against Senpai while Ethereal had a draw with Fritz and Booot lost from Houdini.

Leela didn't have a good game since after opening it ended up in a position where she didn't have a clear target and didn't managed to find a plan to create a specific target. In an almost equal position she has fallen again for a perpetual check tactic, a rather deep one this time, and 3 fold repetition draw occurred. As we mentioned other times in this blog, perpetual check detection is one of Leela's weaknesses, but on the 2 previous times in this tournament this had happened the position was draw so Leela did not lose any points out of them. But in this game this may not be the case since while the position was equal, a different choice by Leela not falling into the trap, would mean the game will continue and who knows if Leela could turn the position in her favor.

ROUND 31
While Shredder started the tournament with 9.5 points after 11 games with 8 wins, 3 draws and no losses, in the next 20 games it has 11 points out of 20 games with 3 wins 1 loss and 16 draws!! It has been transformed into a drawing machine. Here didn't manage to win against Nemorino.

Leela had a big fight as she had with black to face Stockfish. Stockfish with white had 2 draws and 13 wins so far, no losses of course so Leela theoretically before the match would have one of the toughest games. Yet Leela playing a kind of anti-computer game managed to lock the position in a Sicilian opening and after that an never ending shuffling occurred that was more or less pointless as the result was determined already. A draw! In the end there were some nice fireworks for the uninitiated eye of humans, but these computers play on another level and both sides had everything under control.

Houdini and Komodo outplayed in the endgame Xiphos and Vajolet respectively and they won, so after Stockfish's draw both big 3 are tied in points for the first place.
