Wow, a nice Smarthink surprise

Post by Tony Thomas » Fri Jun 06, 2008 4:24 am

On my computer, Smarthink is currently the 5th strongest engine after 132 games. I didnt expect it to perform so well, note that Smarthink has always been a good blitzer. The program used its own book, that might have been a factor too..Looking at a quick and dirty elostat list shows that it indeed improved as promised in the add..Detailed report with Bayesian rating will be posted as soon as I get back from the airport..
I highly recommend everyone to buy this engine

Offset = 2300
Prior = 0.1

I decided to stick with offset 2300, otherwise I think that few engines will have negetive rating..Damir, I doubt that the games are really that interesting, I use 1min+1sec time control..If you still want them, I could post few games that I find interesting.

Here is the top 20
