Re: TCEC stage 3 , New Houdini starts with a bang

That makes sense to me Ignacio. I've only just received my Komodo 10 chess program and am very impressed with its tactical skills and its patience.

Re: Too expensive

Agreed. I've got Komodo 9.42 and paid just over $100 for it. I've enjoyed

Re: Position to be solved first by head and then by your eng

You infer that they build up strong tactical positions and wear the opponent down. I do agree that this is a feature of their play.Nonetheless I...
