Strong Finish by Murx in 28th EMT

By Arno Nickel

A brace in round 8 and 9 decided the day for Murx (Clemens Keck, Germany) with Komodo 11 and Houdini 6, which earned him $ 500 USD.  This tour was not a Stockfish party, but rather in favour of Houdini 6, which had been released recently. Only four Stockfish engines made it up to the top ten. A slight curiosity is the second rank of Izanagi (Jitan Stribal, Japan), as he never belong to the leading group. But in the end a solid +2 result was enough, as he came 1 Buchholz point ahead of MCDemont (Robert Söhnlein, Germany) with Houdini 6. The third player to achieve a +2 result was Blitzmaster (William Fuller, USA), who also set his hopes on Houdini 6 and Komoso 11 just as as the tour winner.

The table below shows which engines all players used. A quite mixed ensemble.

The draw rate was slightly lower than last time, even though there were no really weak players. The field was close together all the time, and there was only one player with -3 out of 13 games.
