The Shorties Festival is a computer-computer tournament between top engines with as goal to shed some light on a relative unexplored area in the game of chess namely how to play the opening if only 2 or 3 moves are given in advance. Base will be 2 special Noomen opening sets.
As first try we pitch Komodo 9.42 and Stockfish 7 because a) I don't have the latest Komodo and b) the need for 2 engines closely rated in strength and both versions fit the purpose, Komodo 9.42 is rated 3345 and Stockfish 7 is rated 3355 on the CCRL 40/4 rating list of friday December 1, 2017.
