I don't mean any disrespect to GM Sergey Erenburg, the humiliatee of the title line. He's a fine player - a respectable grandmaster entirely worthy of the title. It's just that today's engines are so strong that humiliation is the name of the game when they do battle with flesh and blood.
Erenburg took on Komodo 10 in a four game match, and in each of them the computer played with six handicaps:
- The GM had White in every game.
- 30-1 time odds: 90' + 30" for Erenburg; 3' + 1" for Komodo.
- Komodo played on just one core rather than its usual 24.
- Komodo couldn't think on Erenburg's time.
- Komodo's opening book was limited to the first three moves.
- Komodo couldn't use tablebases.
Fair? Not quite. Erenburg drew the third game and lost the rest. See the games and read about his travails here.
