Re: A First Glance At the New Vitruvius Engine!!

Hi George, why post results from Strelka against some Ivanhoes and Vitruvius? Sorry, but if you want to prove that Vitruvius is stronger than Ivanhoe then that is the wrong way I think. Please post results of Vitruvius against several opponents, that is the only way to estimate its strength. Best re...

Re: Mythbuster continued ...but Komodo comes back

Here are the IPON...

Re: Mythbuster continued ...but Komodo comes back

As far as can be judged by observing the games and the results, there is no diminishing strength difference to be seen between Komodo and Houdini, as was the myth created by Don. Game 18 was an example of good late middlegame/endgame play by Houdini. With black it played very strong as you can repl...

Re: Mythbuster continued ...but Komodo comes back

Hello Bram, thank you very much for your commentary on the games! That is highly appreciated because it makes the matches more interesting. For me it's not possible to watch all the games at the same time so it's good to have a second pair of eyes looking for interesting games to comment on. Indeed ...

Re: Houdini 3

Hello Sedat, Sure...you did not use exactly the same words,but its quite qlear what do you mean with your 1st posting In my opinion,all testers should be neutral and what a pity that some testers are against testing some top engines Well, let me say it that way: For my taste there are too many Ippo-...

Re: Houdini 3

Hi Sedat, Really i dont understand why some people are against Ippo-family engines ?! I hope its not due to Ippo engines are clones and all rest engines are 100 % original work ?! Where did I say that I'm against Ippo-family engines? Please read my post again. I only said that Komodo evalutates comp...

Re: I have a recommendation for you and all testers

Hi Ingo, playing "certain moves within X amount of time" is a totally different thing as "X amount of time per move". But I guess you realized the difference. Of course, the TC "game in x" is giving best independence to the engines time management. But at some tournaments (not only human, but also c...

Re: Houdini 3

Hi Larry, don't spend too much time on ultra-fast time controls. I'd say that isn't too interesting for real chess players and computerchess enthusiasts. An engine that is strong at medium and long TCs is most important. What I like most about Komodo is its totally different evaluation of some posit...

No, unfortunately not. Fritz GUI is generating a new page for every tournament, so I have to upload them to different destinations.
