GGT. Stockfish 1.6 in a festive playing mood

In early November I've started my GGT (Great Gambit Tournament) with the best MP- Engines, on a longer time control. I'll report it in more detail somewhat later. Replacing now stockfish 1.5 with the new version 1.6, the Glaurung-Successor won at once his first Gambit round. Yes, of course, one roun...

Annals of testing an elusive engine

I started testing the new Cyclones with version 4.0. It scored very good against stockfish1.4 and thinker 5.4Di and failed only with Rybka2.2n. But there was a mp bug, you couldn't use this derivative with more than two processors. A few days later the xTreme series came out, but this one and all fo...

Re: Lack of up-to-date engines

Is there anyone who knows the price for a Nalimov license? I've never heard that he charges for it, but I don't know for sure that he doesn't. The main issue seems to be that Dr. Nalimov would have to give up some control over his code to allow it in GPL applications. Oh horror, licensing agreemens...

Re: Stockfish 1.5

Rush hour of the chess engines! Fritz 12, Shredder 12, Stockfish 1.5. The Stockfish Triad wrote a new source, Jim Ablett compiles at lightning speed and lo and behold, a new engine was born, well bedded into the world wide standard of SMKs UCI and into a smart GUI of your choice.
