Milady_3.25 - Fidelity Phantom (19-1)

Game over! Milady won by a large score. I wonder why the score is so high, that is not normal. The same phenomena arose against the Mephisto Expert. The score leads to a rating of 2346. All the games are available here.So that maybe there is a phenomena, when a engine is tactically much stronger than an other, the stronger engine will win anyway? I have not the answer but I have seen this hypothesis on SchachComputer.info. To be clarified...

End of the match Phantom - Mephisto MMII : 13 - 7

I will update the page both of Phantom and MM II (double work :P ) . The Phantom won 13-7, giving a performance of 1877 +- 72, that is consistent with its ranking of 1835. Performance of MM II is of 1727+- 72.
 
Total games 20 Mean rating 1802,5 Error Barre (%) 8,9    
  Score Rating Perf (%) Rating opponents Perf (elo) Error Bar (Elo) Elo
Mephisto MMII 7,0 1770,0 35,0 1835,0 1715,0 71,6 1727,5
Fidelity Phantom 13,0 1835,0 65,0 1770,0 1890,0 71,6 1877,5
 
  
During the match, I had the feeling that the Phantom was stronger than MM II. Some of the games were very pleasant, as can be seen below (game 17). Some of the games were just a succession of blunders from both sides. An other interesting position is this one :
 
6k1/p2b2p1/p1pb1p1p/Pr1p4/R2P3P/3NP3/5PPN/6K1 b - - 7 32 ; game 18 MMII-Phantom
 
After 31. Ra4 ?? there are several winning moves for blacks. The Phantom found one of the winning move. Could you find it?

Phantom 6 - 4 Mephisto MM II

Game 10th finished with a tie, in a drawish bishop/knight ending. So that the score is now 6-4 for the Phantom. Forgot to mentioned the level is 1 min/move. See the pictures of this game below.
 
 
 
 
Note that this performance corresponds to 1765 for the MM II and 1840 for the Phantom which is near the perfect theorical score!
