Its play is very impressive, with a more realistic evaluation score than the regular SF, and an ability to find some amazing moves that other versions can't come up with
.


This position was a little more challenging for programs than 37...Rc6, but not much.

(37... Rc6!! one of the most spectacular moves I've seen in a long time)
the programs I tried find this move almost instantly

What I found significant was Houdini not seeing Rc6 in the actual game (it expected Rcc7), whereas 'Stockwood' was planning for it, with the maneuver Qd8/Rc8/Rc6 (allowing Qc8) aimed at getting hold of the critical c8-h3 diagonal.
