Today, May 10, 2019, Leela is playing in the first game of the high profile TCEC Season 15 Superfinal. Leela qualified after she cleared Division P undefeated, winning at least once head-to-head against every opponent except Houdini. Her opponent in the superfinal is Stockfish, who lost once to Leela head-to-head in Division P, but finished with a higher score by winning more games than Leela against the other Division P competitors.

In the just-concluded TCEC Cup III, seeding was determined by the engines’ finishing position in their divisions, with the exception of Leela, who was automatically seeded #1 as the Defending Cup Champion. Leela easily handled Round 32 and Round 16 of TCEC Cup 3, knocking out Marvin (5-0) and Booot (4.5-0.5). The quarterfinals featured the same engines as Division P with Leela knocking out Fire (5-3). In the semifinal, Leela scored two wins over Houdini ending with a 4.5-2.5 score to advance to the cup final versus Stockfish. In the final, Leela and Stockfish played their first eight games to a tie, each with one win and one loss. In the first tie-breaker pair, Leela won as white and held Stockfish to a draw on the reverse, winning the match 5.5-4.5 for her second consecutive TCEC Cup.

In the hours before the superfinal, the TCEC team ran various unofficial tests at disparate time controls. One such test match featured Stockfish at 30′ + 5″ time control and Leela 1/10th of that at 3′ + 0.5″. Leela still won a game and drew the match despite the large time disadvantage. Prior to the Cup, Leela faced the supercharged 176-thread, 7-man tablebase “Bluefish” version of the Stockfish engine that is used as a kibitzer for the TCEC eval graphs. Again, Leela won a game and drew the match.
