Re: AlphaZero beats AlphaGo Zero, Stockfish, and Elmo

Seems to play a mean game of chess. The endgames is where it excels. Many games looked equal to the naked eye but Alpha went on to win. If this thing follows the Go project then expect in a few months a monster that will beat it's current version quite easily.

Re: Whatever happened to Houdini for Android?

Only Robert can answer this question but he has avoided giving any response. A simple reply like yes it is still planned or no I don't ever want to make the port will at least give some assurance to us.

Hited?! I assume you mean it peaked at 4523. What happens after the 2 minute mark?

Re: Houdini 6 has been released

You should make a version for Android or at the very least make the engine available to purchase as a import option for various apps like ChessBase online or Droidfish. I don't use desktop versions of engines and all study/research is done with high powered Android mobiles.

Re: iPad Pro 2 12.9 512 GB:)

Because I tested it with Stockfish "Tord Romstad app", you should know. Last update was 29.10.2014!!! = 3 years ago so I think it was an old Stockfish and not the super fast Stockfish 8 or a current development version, which should be much faster than only 4300 kn/s.
