|Houdini 2.0c x64 vs Rainbow UNLimited
At a time when he had to slow Houdini down- or else, he faces "or else!" As far as I can tell, if you slow Houdini down, it is extremely temporary. When you have to face Houdini- I see a lot more questions than answers, and awfully tough now after Houdini stretched the lead out to 20 games. We shall see.
Intel i5 w/4TCs
Fritz 13 gui
Perfect 12.32 book w/12-move limit
[thru game 250]
|Houdini 2.0c x64 +28 +77/-57/=116 54.00% 135.0/250
Rainbow UNLimited -28 +57/-77/=116 46.00% 115.0/250
Well, I'm out of answers- if I ever had any- and really can't remember the questions. I suppose maybe if one of the top programs were to run against Houdini- giving them both 12 or 16 cores, and set a control of 40 moves in the first year and a half- then the rest within a limit of a couple weeks- and the planets were in the right alignment, it might get lucky. Who knows. Maybe wouldn't hurt to bring a few voodoo dolls just in case.
