A summary statistics table of previous stages and seasons.
Draw rate, wins
Final draw rate was 71%.
The three most common game termination causes were:
35% - SyzygyTB
35% - TCEC draw rule
12% - TCEC win rule
were no crashes in the stage. Seven games ended with mate on the board, weird for a superfinal.
Moves per game
Much higher than usual even for a superfinal, the graph is also very unusual. In many games Leela had long shuffle periods, even when it was winning. There were 46
games longer than 100 moves (17 over 150 moves), the
longest was 211 moves (Leela - Stockfish, game 58, draw).
Time per game (hours)
The time control was 90 minutes, shorter than usual for a superfinal.
There were variable length book openings in this stage chosen by Jeroen. The first letter of the ECO codes was
distributed as follows:
engines had almost no freedom to choose the opening variant, 90%
of the game pairs repeated the same ECO code, 88% repeated the opening variant. In 94% of the game pairs the ECO
first letter was repeated twice. The exceptions were a few very short book sequences of length under 5.
Reverse pairs, wins
Reverse pairs, same moves
Pairs of reverse games diverged very quickly, 28% diverged
out of book, 66% of the pairs diverged at most after 1 move. The
longest repeated sequence of moves was 10 plys (Stockfish
- Leela games 79 and 80 that had a 30-ply book opening, Ruy Lopez: closed, Flohr-Zaitsev system, two draws)
