Re: TCEC Season 10 announced

A game that takes an hour isn't 'rapid" and on the massive hardware they use the "quality" is still exceptionally high.

Re: TCEC Season 10 announced

Last TCEC was very interesting because of the participation of the new Houdini.

I hope we will see again a new Houdini in the tournament.

Re: THE SSDF RATING LIST 2017-07-27

With this new hardware and the longer timecontrol the SSDF will be a very interesting ratinglist.

I will follow it.

I hope you can test a Stockfish released at the time of Komodo 11.01 soon.

Houdini 5 is also a very welcome guest in a ratinglist.

Thx for your work.

Testposition for participation on the wccc 2017.
