Re: Stockfish with syzygys gives not mate in 1

I can confirm your observation as well. Also tried houdini with syzygy and there it worked as expected.

Re: Why is Houdini 4 so clueless?

You show no understanding of the real situation. Your game was won by black almost right out of book and both engines knew it looking at the evaluation.

It's about a pattern I see on a regular basis and that is that Houdini gets outplayed by Stockfish and doesn't have a clue until it's too late. The game posted is merely an example. What surprises me most is the immaturity of a certain per...

Re: Why is Houdini 4 so clueless?

Thanks Anil for pointing to that topic. Looking at the last post on page one and I see exactly what I am talking about, but now in a slow game. In the 27th round, Houdini probably lost due to a bug.
