Mona vs YL  "correspondence match" (eight hours per move)

  This match featured a time control typically used for e-mail games.
  YL is able to use more of the fixed time per move, because it uses
  1-ply increments in its search, compared to 2-ply increments for
  each iteration in Mona.  Thus YL effectively used about 60% more
  of the available time on average, looked at more than 30 times as
  many positions, and searched 3-ply deeper on average (essentially
  13-ply vs 16-ply), due to its extremely efficient implementation.

  In contrast, Mona spends much more time analyzing each position.
  At longer time controls the better-informed evaluation function is
  able to overcome the disavantage of the shallower search.  Most of
  the games were tough struggles, but Mona ended up winning the match
  with a 7-1 score.
