Free Engine Tournament

I loaded four free chess engines in SCID vs PC and started a blitz tournament. A three round quad. Stockfish, Komodo, Fire, and Booot. I make no claims for this. It’s just an exercise in fun. I let them use the opening book which greatly sped up arrival at the middle game to within a few seconds. The use of the opening book may have not been equally fair to all the engines. I do not know. I hope you enjoy seeing this result.

Here is the crosstable. Stockfish was the clear winner with Booot and Komodo tieing for second. Fire finished third by half a point.


Here are some of the games.
