Re: Houdini 6 Position Learning

I saw the Houdini 6 online manual and it was in there. That is what threw me off. I hope it comes back.

Re: Current TCEC Cup

If LCO defeated Fire, I am very impressed. If it is still learning I think it is only a matter of time before it becomes number 1. I am not an LCO fan but I will have to slowly climb on the bandwagon if it happens.

Houdini 6 Position Learning

I wonder how much better Houdini could get with Position Learning compared to normal Houdini. Anyone use Houdini position learning?

The last I heard SF was no longer being developed. I am assuming someone will step in and continue it.

Re: Aquarium IDEA question.

You can get Aquarium for only $35. I think its worth a try. I don't see any other program like it.

Re: What got you into computer chess?

It was always nice to play chess whenever you wanted and at different skill levels. You could have hours of entertainment. I got my first set in 1987.

Oh yea. I think it was 1981 my friend got Atari chess which was a joke even back then.

Re: Aquarium IDEA question.

It is virtually undocumented which is why fanboys have created videos. The software is also extremely buggy. If you don't mind supporting such bad behavior with money, go for it.
