Thank you for your support.
Houdini 6 will be released next month, maybe just in time for the TCEC tournament (I don't know when TCEC Season 10 starts, I have no more information than you).

Cheers,

OMG, thats is very very great news ! Knowing you, I m sure we can bet on a good elo jump ! Komodo might be in bad shape here !
or, he might just publish with 20 elo increase, the way he did between H 1.5 and H2.

more probably, it will be around standard this time, maybe a bit lower.

do you believe in the 150 elo tale?
I believe in 40 elo as a minimum , would be enough to beat Komodo but not Stockfish.
Houdini 5.01 ready to beat Komodo latest. H6 will be more better
Houdini 5.01 lost to Komodo 6-1.
For accuracy, you should also mention the number of draws played. Merely tossing them leads to wrong elo differences.

Agreed. I wanted to quickly illustrate that Komodo was better than Houdini 5.1

they need some 10 thousand euro, in order to start.

anyone willing to support TCEC season 10 with 10 thousand euro?

alternatively, Martin can check very well his legal contract and, if possible, should start a completely new TCEC2(some other name), the way he has been doing it quite successfully for a long time.

One idea is to split money spent on the main server in half so TCEC can benefit from ponder.

Two above medicore servers with ponder vs beast sevver without ponder.

Which one do you choose?
