Re: Houdini 5 has been released

Robert, Houdini 3, 4 and 5 - all three of them are great engines for my chess games analyses. Houdini 5 plays truly awesome chess and is a huge step to the next level of top chess engines. Do you intend to develop Houdini further as next year by this time to release Houdini 6, or this is the last ve...

Re: TCEC update .......

the topic should speak about the future Houdini, not the past Houdini. Sadly, still no news...It makes no sense a final between Houdini 20.07.2016 and Stockfish 8, the latter is too strong. The result would clearly favour Stockfish

Re: New Houdini

I guess you're right, some kind of Stockfish 8 + Komodo 10.2 / 2,

Re: New Houdini

I don't think Houdini 5 will be as strong as Stockfish 8, maybe 25 ELO points above Komodo 10.2 but not even close to the latest Stockfish version

Re: Regarding the next TCEC

I hope new very strong versions of Shredder and Hiarcs will participate. Otherwise, the battle for nr. 1 spot will be again between Stockfish and Komodo. Graham, do you have any news about the engines mentioned above ( Hiarcs and Shredder )?. What about Fire, Junior and Houdini? Best regards! BTW: I...
