Draw 70%! is this because the rivals are Rybkas too?

Yes,its true that we see many draws when we run engine-matches between same kind of versions,
but i'd like mention here that the Perfect book is also tested with Zappa Mexico against Rybka  engine and if you check carefully the statistics you will see the statistic difference comparing with the rest books:

8 Zappa Perfect 13.ctg      : 3012  300 (+ 43,=191,- 66), 46.2 %

Rybka RybkaII.ctg             : 100 (+ 19,= 60,- 21), 49.0 %
Rybka HS-for-Rybka.ctg        : 100 (+ 17,= 67,- 16), 50.5 %
Rybka Perfect 13.ctg          : 100 (+  7,= 64,- 29), 39.0 %

Thanks for the explanation and your work, your book is no doubt the best for both engines, that improve a lot of elo points;) Rybka still has and edge even with the better book for Zappa.

I wonder what would you get in a long match if Rybka uses your book and Zappa uses Erdo's tournament private book.

And I have a question to Jeroen, if he reads this, is Rybka tournament book huge or small as Sedat's perfect 13?

I wonder too,but there is no doubt that will be a tight fight !
And of course we need at least 100 games to see the performances of the both books.

If you mean about the WinRAR size of RybkaII.ctg is 96MB
and Perfect 13.ctg is just only 20MB !

Do you have any contact with Erdo?

About the size, yes I saw that picture and assumed that your book was smaller.

Another question would be, is it better a small or a huge book. Of course I suppose that with a small book you will be out of book sooner and more frecuently. But your book is smaller and better than RybkaII, so?

No any contact with Erdogan Gunesh so far...

The performance of any opening book depends on the strongest moves.

For example,The Perfect 13.ctg is a proof that even with a small size(approx. 20MB) can beat a larger openings books.
The most important thing is here to find the strongest move,not the longest line !

Notes about Perfect 13.ctg:
-The book is tested with more than 10.000 games (90m+30s,15m+10s,10m+10s,4m+2s,3 min on Playchess)
-I have spent more than 60 days(approx.500 hours) on optimizing the strongest lines by hand !

BTW,and now i feel a little bit tired :)

Best,
Sedat
