Lesson from My Komodo Match
By GM Eugene Perelshteyn
Recommended for Intermediate Players
Presented by International Grand Master Eugene Perelshteyn for ChessLecture.com
Komodo is a commercial chess engine that is consistently ranked near the top of most major chess engine rating lists. Komodo heavily relies on board evaluation rather than depth, and thus has a distinctive positional style. Its forte is to play when there is nothing to play. Komodo author Don Dailey described it as such: "In positions that most engines would likely struggle or find it impossible to make progress, Komodo quietly prepares a break and ends up with the victory.
Komodo is rated 3300 and Eugene is rated 2600.
