As you can see, Bram, you're getting only 4819 or so kN/s while I'm getting more than 17000 kN/s in just 4 seconds flat...makes all the difference, dude ! :wink:

You may boast about your computer power, but you still have not yet understand the chessposition on the board
There is only one drawing move and that is Be3 ! not Kd4 which in your picture 'your' Houdini 4 gives as second alternative move with 0.00 (?) at depth 27/54

I have let Komodo 6TCEC ran the position on multi pv and also Komodo gives Bh2 till depth 30 as 0.00 alternative
Probably Stockfish is more brilliant in such endgame positions

Huh ? Who carez about SECOND choice.....my Houdini 4's FIRST choice was Be3 and that's all that matters.
Learn to believe the truth when it stares you in the face...your computer is SLOW SLOW SLOW.....even my Grandma's computer gives more than 7000 kN/s. I see that you post a lot of Tests in the Tournaments and Matches Section...this calls into question ALL your results; seeing the (alleged) computer you run Tournaments on !
17000 kN/s vs 4800 kN/s :roll: ....no contest !

It takes Houdini 52 seconds to switch to Be3, whereas Stockfish needs less than a second.

It took my little MONSTER computer less than 4 seconds (see above screenshot) and it was FIRST choice, no SWITCHING involved...get it ?

Maybe we need a subforum for fanboys?
