Re: chessbase houdini is out but...

not entirely rigth, but close. the 3 tops are almost on par, though SF is still a bit ahead. I would have written one of the 3 strongest engines in the world, which certainly would be more correct.

Re: Change the unfair ruler

Now we change the 50 mover rule. It is outdated! We then also change the en passant. It is outdated! It is unfair only PAWN can use this one.
