Houdini vs Stockfish Match 2014

Post by RIDDICK » Fri Jan 17, 2014 4:10 pm

Let's start the year 2014 with a Match between his majesty the magician Houdini and acclaimed challenger Stockfish! Reading continual statements about superiority of the latter, which seem to be a constant on various chess forum, I decided to test these super-motors in a LTC-Match: 120m/40 + 60m/20 + (15m + 15s).

Starting positions will be drawn from Graham Banks's chess openening library: Graham2014-1F (thank you Graham); for a total of 248 positions! I can't dedicate my computer to this match 24/7, so this test will last a long time! I'm sorry. Stockfish version is 070114 by Ronald de Man (tablebases support).

CPU: Intel i7-3930K@4,4GHz (6 CPU)

TABLEBASES: Syzygy 5-Men
PERMANENT BRAIN: OFF
OS: Windows 7 64 bit SP1

Great Houdini's magic in the 23th round! Stockfish seems to be the favorite, but I don't think he can beat Houdini in this match.

Excellent !
Now, THAT'S what I call REAL, MEANINGFUL Testing !...not the blitz/STC nonsense on obsolete hardware that most Testers do that proves NOTHING about REAL strength of the Engine....at best, it finds out which Engine has the best Time Management (hooray ! :roll: ).
Keep up the good work, Riddick !

Good idea for a tournament, but the PGNs for the individual games (clicking on c8 square) don't have basics like depth or eval, just the moves. A little too bare bones, IMO.

Also, I hope you only have the Syzygy paths set for the engines, and not the GUI. (no way of knowing if there have been GUI take-over from the PGNs provided so far)

Now, THAT'S what I call REAL, MEANINGFUL Testing !...not the blitz/STC nonsense on obsolete hardware that most Testers do that proves NOTHING about REAL strength of the Engine....at best, it finds out which Engine has the best Time Management (hooray ! :roll: ).
Keep up the good work, Riddick !
Hi Anil V Dharan, thanks! I think so too.

Hi Rob Nicholas, the full PGN file (eval, depth and move time) will be posted at the end of the match.

Yes, I have only set Syzygy paths for the engines, TB-GUI path is empty. You don't worry...

Thanks Mr Riddick, good to hear. It's just that I already saw some very interesting games, and was hoping to be able to look at more detailed PGN info to see what the engines were reporting. I meant no criticism, but it sounds like this tournament might last some time :D

I know this, but as I said before, I'll post the full-PGN file at the end of the match.

The last game, about Bird Opening, is in progress...

In the 27th round, Houdini probably lost due to a bug. After 49...Qb7 evaluation and depth were abnormal until 56...Nxe5:

49.Nd4 -0.28/32 3:23 Qb7 -1.63/40 2:02 50.Kh3 -0.11/32 2:28 Rc5 -1.63/42 4:58 51.Nb3 -0.11/35 2:05 Rc2 -1.59/44 10:04 52.Qf3 -0.00/35 2:31 Ra2 -1.71/43 7:11 53.Bd4 -0.00/35 2:47 Nc6 -1.91/37 1:23 54.Bc3 -0.00/41 2:50 Ra3 -4.95/40 1:19 55.Nd2 -0.11/57 3:49 Bb4 -5.31/42 2:13 56.Qe2 -4.59/30 9:24 Rxc3 -6.12/41 1:31

Also in the output engine window were displayed two moves only, from 52.Qf3 to 55.Nd2. Houdini's depth jumped from 35 to 57 (impossible depth in this position for Houdini) in less than 4 minutes! I think that something is wrong... What do you think about it?

The 28 games about Bird Opening are finished.

HOUDINI: Points = 13.5/28; Average Speed = 19550 kN/s; Average Plies = 29.3.
STOCKFISH: Points = 14.5/28; Average Speed = 12598 kN/s; Average Plies = 39.0.
