Houdini draws with Fizbo and Wasp. I am concerned.

Is the latest version of Rybka or old version of 4.1?

Thanks, I thought with Fritz 16 coming out it might have a new version of Rybka.

Concerned that they didn't blunder a single time and played a perfect game?

If it played perfect it would have won. Right?

I play tic tac toe perfectly, but I rarely win a game.

Stockfish games are difficult to understand: it plays one pawn less with black and still wins 3000-3100 opponents :o .

Beautiful game of Stockfish in Rybka-SF on Stage 1 round 5, SF played like
Karpov or Petrosian. Nothing explosive nor something special happened but
black wins because white is in a very difficult bind and cannot break out.
Very funny because white is a pawn up but have very limited piece mobility.

Stockfish is the closest chess entity that we have to God. Who should be surprised?
