Game 6 - drawn game. Match level at 3.0-3.0

Post by Graham Banks » Fri Nov 24, 2017 7:47 pm

GAME 6

Stockfish was able to nullify any potential queenside advantage that Houdini was hoping to gain. Eventually a queen and extra pawn versus two rooks ending came about. Houdini played this actively to avoid any nasties and secure a draw. The match score is 3.0-3.0 (one win each).

Game 7 - Houdini the more active, but always looked drawn.

Post by Graham Banks » Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:02 pm

GAME 7

Houdini played more actively, but Stockfish was never in danger. The queen and rook ending that eventuated was always drawn. The match score is still level at 3.5-3.5 (one win each).

Game 8 - exciting Houdini kingside attack, but another draw.

Post by Graham Banks » Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:20 pm

GAME 8

Houdini unleashes a kingside attack out of nowhere with 32. g4 and a pseudo rook sacrifice with 35. Rxc6. However, despite the flurry of activity that follows, both sides had 0.00 evaluations through till the end. The match is still level at 4.0-4.0 (one win each).

Re: Game 3 - Houdini survives attack and turns the tables

Post by gotogo » Sat Nov 25, 2017 1:02 am

Graham please pardon my comment it has nothing to do with your tournament! I know you are doing a fine jab as always!

Stockfish is a beat down version of what it use to be! Stockfish team has been lobotomizing Stockfish since June and has not stopped!
I'm not sure if they are working to change the format or just weakening it for commercial engine advantage.. In any case it's still a free engine..

Hope your testing goes well!
I like Houdini too always have!

Game 9 - Houdini gains spatial edge, but Stockfish is solid

Post by Graham Banks » Sat Nov 25, 2017 7:59 pm

GAME 9

Houdini gained a spatial advantage, but the Stockfish position was rock solid. A fairly uneventful draw. The match score is 4.5-4.5 (one win each).

Game 10 - Houdini attempts to break open position, but drawn

Post by Graham Banks » Sat Nov 25, 2017 8:08 pm

GAME 10

Houdini initially had thoughts about an early e4 followed by kingside expansion. However, Stockfish organised its position well to prevent this. When Houdini eventually pushed forward with its pawns, a mass of exchanges quickly led into a completely drawn ending. The match is tied at 5.0-5.0, with each engine having one win in the bank.

Game 11 - Houdini piece sac in opening cleverly defused.

Post by Graham Banks » Sat Nov 25, 2017 8:15 pm

GAME 11

Houdini sacs a piece in the opening to keep the enemy king in the centre. However, a cunning knight manoeuvre by Stockfish sees the queens come off and the material returned to get rid of any danger. A rook and pawns ending eventuates and this is ultimately drawn. The match score is 5.5-5.5 (one win each).

Game 12 - Stockfish plays actively, interesting endgame..

Post by Graham Banks » Sat Nov 25, 2017 8:27 pm

GAME 12

Stockfish actively plays for an advantage with black, but the game doesn't seem to be going anywhere. The game then takes an interesting turn in the endgame, as Houdini ends up with a queen against rook and knight. However it is the rook and knight in combination with an active position and menacing queenside pawns that look most dangerous, so Houdini restores the material balance to go into a drawn kong and pawns ending. The score is now 6.0-6.0 (one win each).

Game 13 - Houdini's queenside pawn majority comes to naught.

Post by Graham Banks » Sat Nov 25, 2017 8:45 pm

GAME 13

Houdini obtains a queenside pawn majority out of the opening, but initially focuses on kingside play. However, when it becomes obvious that there is nothing to be gained on that side of the board, Houdini creates an outside passed pawn on the queenside. Again, Stockfish has things covered though and once the queens come off, the a-pawn also disappears and a drawn ending results. The match score is now 6.5-6.5 (one win each).
