The 2016 World Computer Chess Champion!!

Komodo is a three-time TCEC champion and current World Computer Chess Champion. Version 10.4 is an improved version of the one that recently won both the 2016 World Computer Chess Championship (despite a 50 to 1 hardware disadvantage vs. its main rival) and the 2016 World Software Chess Championship. Komodo 10.4 is an improvement over the version that won the 2016 World Rapid Computer Chess Championship with an incredible 97% score. It also defeated a strong grandmaster by 3 to 1 despite giving him a two pawn handicap.
