Houdini 2.0C and Deep Junior 13 are much much stronger engines than Chessmaster.

Too much Ippo-Robbo-Ivan brainwash isn't good !
1.They aren't any Chessmaster chess engine !
2. The chess engines used along the history on Chessmaster GUIs were WChess and The King !
3.The King 3.50 chess engine plays at a GM level !
4.The King is a flexible chess engine. Can be tuned from a novice to a very strong player level ! Not like your Ivans.
5.Can you understand what means a nice play in chess and what means a strong play in chess ? The King plays first of all a nice chess ! A sort of art. In the same class with Diep , The Baron and some few engines ! Probably you never heard something about !
6.Are you a such strong player to beat everyday The King at its full force ? I doubt ! Even GM Larry Christiansen wasn't able !
7.Why are you interested only in force ? For me , even Marquis , Virutor , Toledo & co. are interesting chess entities.
8.Your computer chess culture stops to Houdini and Junior ? Only between are a lot of chess engines : Komodo , Stockfish , Critter , Fritz , Rybka , Shredder ........some with a nice history .
9.And.... why exactly Houdini and Junior ? I have already an explanation about " votre faiblesses" !
What a pity ! Go to your daily dope with Ivans ( brute) force ! Prune this my post , please !
