Re: Chess-Engines with unique and incomparable playing style

I would like to discuss Engines with a unique and incomparable playing style. Most Engines today plays all the same meaningless mainstream-chess. There is no really significant difference between Houdini, Critter and all the ippoclones. Which Engines play different to them? I would like to see fasc...

Due to restrictions, I think for the Amazon and Ebay listings below people in the United States and maybe some other places can't have the items shipped to them.

Re: Chess-Engines with unique and incomparable playing style

I liked Junior's 7 personality and playing style. No boring games. :D Always something was happening. If not an exchange sacrifice or a pure one would happen, then it would give a Pawn every time just for the fun of it. :lol: Is it possible to purchase Junior 7 or Fritz 10 anywhere? Would they work...

Re: Which engine has been the most exciting in the last 5 ye

i think every individuals criteria will be too variable to glean much from this poll.... oddly enough my vote would be Hiarcs 12 because it was when I realized how much fun it could be analyzing with two or more engines and playing against different engines. (my first engine was Shredder 11, my sec...

Re: Deep Rybka 4.1 vs Houdini 3

It is not a matter of believing but in all likelihood a matter of statistics. No need for hocus pocus, no need for the argument that Rybka is much better at long timecontrols etc. It is not true, Junior is much better at long time controls.
