Hi Martin,

I can't find much info about the engine updates for Stage 3...

Can you tell us more, especially concerning the (unfulfilled) Houdini update rumor. 8-)

You can easily see the engines that has been updated by comparing the version numbers from Stage 2, to Stage 3.

For the record, Komodo, Gull & Stockfish has been updated since Stage 2. :)

Of course I can see - without glasses!

But many TCEC fans would have appreciated a comment, in particular concerning Houdini...

It would be great that you will update your simulations taking in mind the true results of former rounds, just to see the variation of your forecasts. Thanks in advance!

Thank you very much for TCEC, Martin!
