Re: Which 2 engines would you like to see tested next?

Yes - I heard VITRUVIUS is quite awesome in tactics! CRYPTIC, THINKER 5.5 and STRELKA MP would be great! (4 programs) I look forward for DEEP SHREDDER 13, DEEP HIARCS 14 and DEEP FRITZ 13 release. If DEEP RYBKA 5 comes out this year, then the clash with HOUDINI 3 is the most expected match of the p...

Re: New time control: Critter 1.4a vs Houdini 2.0c results

Nothing of real worth can be deduced from this, but it could be a point of further investigation. There were 12 games where the results were the same as with the 5' + 5" time control. Round 2, Houdini won both as White: [Round "1-2"] [Opening "Bird's Opening"] [ECO "A03"] [PlyCount "15"] 1. f4 d5 2....

Mate in 1779 moves

Here's a new one. I'm experienced enough to know engines sometimes momentarily "go awry" but then quickly bounce back to regular thinking. Here is a fun example of this: http://goo.gl/OlH6F After a few seconds, it realized that mate was just 70 moves away. (I mean no disrespect to the engine or its ...
