The TCEC Cup is now an integral part of the seasons of the Top Chess Engine Championship. It brings a special twist to the regular pace of the season, gives a chance for lower rated engines to meet the best, and also provides opportunity for engines with new versions to show their best and climb up the ladder.
The first TCEC Cup was convincingly won by Stockfish. It proved superior in Season 13 and did not give a chance to its opponents at any moment during the cup competition as well. TCEC Cup 2, however, was a different story. Stockfish stumbled at the semi-final against the S10 champion version of Houdini. This pitted Houdini against the bearer of the NN revolution Lc0, and the latter won its first major title in computer chess.
In the round of the cup 4 of TCEC we had a matchgame between Stockfish againf Chess 22k in which Stockfish crushed his opponent with a result of 5-0.
Today I wanted to show you the first game in which Stockfish crushed Chess 22 k after only 17 moves.
Here is the PGN of the game:
