Battling the Beast

Inspired by the recent material odd games of GM's against Komodo 9 I decided to play in similar kinds of games against Komodo 6. To start off I decided experiment with what material odds were at least somewhat challenging. The games were played at a time control of 10 2. To start into it I went in nice and gently with a rook up. The game (if you want to call it that) was very one sided. The second game was a piece up and slightly more even as Komodo managed to simplify everything and reach an ending which against a human would be easy to convert, but against the engine took some ingenuity. I had some trouble with time as well getting as low as 5 seconds, however I did finish him off on move 120

So we'll see what material odds I decide to play my match at, but for now I hope you enjoyed the game. Try playing against engines with material odds and let me know your results below!
