Chess base engines room full of Houdini 1.5!!! Great new!!!

Post by Father » Wed Feb 02, 2011 7:12 pm

What a great new!!! :D :D :D

The engine room from playchess.com is now full of Houdini 1.5 engines. Deep Rybkas 4 and Houdinis 1.5. looks as the two top queens that are dancing in the midle of the hunggle!!!

The engine room is intended for (many different or all) engines. But what a boring thing if there are only Houdini and Rybka engines on the server.

Ivanhoes, Rybkas, Houdinis,Naums,Spikes, Stockfishs, and Zappas, just as examples, are not bad engines famelies... and the Closters and Hardwares that are there are not for a joke... Time to see a Hydra again into engines room.... the Top of the Top place for man versus machine in all the Earth.

:D :D :D :D

Of course, that's human nature. Who would want to take an engine rated 300 points lower in there to get pounded by the top 2 or 3?

I guess this is a matter of taste. I always have great fun playing micro-Max against engines 400 or 500 Elo stronger. Usually it loses, of course. But sometimes micro-Max wins, and the satisfaction from seeing a no-knowledge 100-line code beat a serious engine surpasses anything even 1000 wins with Houdini could give me. (If I had been its author, that is. Having to derive your kicks from seeing an engine win that you only bought or even downloaded for free is just pathetic...) The greater the achievement, the higher the reward. What point is there in beating opponents that are weaker?
