this rating list is something I created after 2 months of making matches on my personal computer whose spec is on average

I got the list of engines I want to test after carefully reviewing rating sites such as CCRL, CETG, Jurek and a dozen more sites

I have all the strongest engines in the whole world you can possible summon up except for
- Rick48 (that will be release in a few months, rick48 uses a revolutionary new algorithm that is different from brute searching, it uses a new algorithm which can understand position and tactics of chess just like human players, yes rick48 plays chess like humans by understanding positions and chess strategy)
- Komodo 4536 (it is like version 5.5 that is private)
- Strelka 5.6 (private)

and the rating lists on many homepages show that all of rick48 (future versions), komodo 4536 and strelka 5.6 are stronger than critter 1.6a

spec:

I ran the tournament on my computer
(average 32bit multi-core AMD CPU, average RAM)

time control is blitz

book depth is restricted to up to 8 moves so that no one side will be penalized after finishing using the book (if the engine refers to the book for more than 10, 15 moves or so, one side will usually be in huge advantage)

all engines here had minimum matches of 200
(only a few newest engines such as rodent 1.00 which are released a few days ago have minimum matches of 50)

I ran the tourney in Fritz 13 than I changed the GUI to winboard 4.70 final version which was recently released that has perfect graphics after which the ratings were calculated by using Arena 3's elo stat 1.3 (I removed some entries in the rating list photo since elo stat 1.3 produces some bugs)

ponder off

Bayeselo


>>>


there's a stockfish-related website from which I got dozens of different versions of stockfish (stockfish 2.31 was released half a year ago or so, during the past half a year, another author updated stockfish 2.31 something like 40 times, I tried most of them and I am 99% sure that the stockfish version 2013 Mar 4th is probably the strongest stockfish version of all)

stockfish (version 2013 Mar 4th) is almost 200 elo stronger than the official stockfish 2.31 from the original author which means that is an amazing job to do

you can download 192 different versions of ivanhoe engines
there is a link
I have no time to test that many ivanhoes
can anyone of you test all those versions after downloading all those 192 versions (it is only one huge zip file in which there are 192 versions) so that all of us can finally find out which version is the best

the ivanhoe versions I have in this rating list are probably the strongest ones (but I didn't test all those 192 versions, I only selected and chose dozens of different ivanhoes after reviewing many factors)

that houdini 2.0c in this list is an error
elo stat 1.3 made a few errors
so I removed some with blue rectangles
just ignore the houdini 2.0c in this list

Rick48-v4 is a Winboard chess engine employing a revolutionary Active Space Algorithm (ASA). Unique playing style is combined with deep understanding of positional and strategic(!) subtleties. A sophisticated time management is another strong point in longer games. Rick48 outplays his opponents in an invisible way gaining frequently huge time advantage. Looks like the era of 'brute force' searchers is coming to an end.


that is the info about rick48 from the authors


I tried to find what this revolutionary Active Space Algorithm is
from the web and a dozen more informative websites but I failed to gain any info
on what this revolutionary Active Space Algorithm is


please tell me if you know what this revolutionary Active Space Algorithm means in details
(the only info I found was something like by employing this new algorithm,
rick48 can play chess just like human players
by evaluating positions and chess strategies)




>>>



http://abrok.eu/stockfish/

there are dozens of stockfish engine (some of them are 200 elo stronger than stockfish 2.31)



>>>



I don't remember where I found all those 192 diff ivanhoe engines
maybe some of you know the address of the website
if you are able to test all those 192 ivanhoe engines...
can anyone of you test all those 192 ivanhoes
in order for us to know that version is the king

in the old rating list
you may notice that
there are 2 Strelka 5.5 engines...

as I mentioned
elo stat 1.3 produces some errors in the list
so there are 2 same engines
- Strelka 5.5
- Strelka 5.5 x32
the upper one (Strelka 5.5) which has the better elo is genuine
disregard the bottom one (Strelka 5.5 x32) which is an error

I tried to remove those kinds of errors in the rating list

but I ran over the list so I might forget some entries

the following is the newest version of the rating list

- rick
(currently rick48 is an old version
they speculate that the new version of rick48 will be released in a few month
which will be stronger than houdini 3)
- Houdini 3
- Komodo 4536 (= komodo 5.5)
- Strelka 5.6 (private)
- Critter 1.6a


just for your reference
those are the 5 strongest engines
(the topmost one = number 1)
(the bottom most one = # 5)

(thousands of more matches were added

I also merged and combined all the fragments of the list
for easy viewing

indeed, houdini 3
is the king

and critter 1.6a
which is a freeware is super duper hyper strong,
almost as strong as the king

speaking of the king...
the king engine (the engine of chessmaster series) was one of my favorite

I executed a thousand matches or so
for the highest ranked engines
and I'll upload the full list which contains about 100 engines soon
but for the time being
I am just posting the short rating list
(I'll soon post it)
which only contains one best version for each engine
(you can find my full rating list in my previous post)

the list that is upcoming will be made with more matches so
the elo ratings and ranks of engines will be more accurate
than those of the previous rating list

I wrote about rick48
and posted in another section of the forum
and rick48 is speculated to be even stronger than houdini 3
which(rick48's newest version) will be released at the end of this year

I searched for more info about rick48
but there's scanty amount of info about it
I reviewd and read more than 30 most famous rating sites
but only one site has rick48 in their rating list
I read that rick48 is a private engine at the moment
and supposedly rick48 was only given to that one site to be tested
rick48 is as powerful as the best engines right now
but the authors of rick48 said
the newest version of rick48 that will be released soon in several months
will be even more powerful than houdini 3
and when that happens so many enthusiasts will be delighted

rick48 is rated here

this is only the top portion of the newest version of the rating list
which only contains one best version for each engine
this rating list contains hundreds of more matches than the previous rating list
thus more accurate

there has been some changes in the ranking among the best engines

plus, the biggest upset is gull is seen

gull has never been discussed to be one of the best engines in the whole world, never

but for the first time

gull became one of the best
gull is the world's 8th best engine now

this top section of the list only contains 1 version per engine (1 best version was selected)

those are the world's best engine and

there are some notable things

ryanfish is almost as strong as houdini

and there are 192 different versions of ivanhoes

I tested more than 100 ivanhoe versions

and I am almost sure that that version aforementioned in this list is the strongest of all ivanhoes

so for ivanhoe enthusiasts, the mystery is almost solved ( ivanhoe enthusiasts always wanted to know which version of evanhoe is the strongest)
