Re: what is the best engine for big material handicap?

Crazyhouse hasn't been taken seriously by programmers. There were efforts made, and then one day Daniel Dugovic had the idea of adapting Stockfish to play 13 new variants, including crazyhouse, and his "MultiVariant" Stockfish was able to beat the second best engine 100% of the time (so imagine tha...
