Which is the best engine for your money?

And if you can't afford Houdini, what's the best "affordable" engine? biggrin

Stay tuned for the lineup & start date.

Progress: *Installing engines and preparing basic tests*

what time control are you using?

descriptionWSCE Season 4 - WORLD'S STRONGEST COMMERCIAL ENGINES EmptyRe: WSCE Season 4 - WORLD'S STRONGEST COMMERCIAL ENGINES

Time Control will be G/30 + 5. Details to be posted here & on my blog, ultracastle00.blogspot.com I plan on using the Fritz 13 GUI this time around.

Progress: Completing testing, and overreacting to a 14-move draw between Fritz amd Zappa

The line involves Nf3 c5 Rb1 O-O Be2 Nc6 in the grunfeld. The main line is d5 of course, but Be3 causes engines to take a draw with Qa5+

Theres also the other 2 main lines, cxd4 and b6 besides Nc6, so I may have to add those into the book.

Vitruvius leading with 3.0 out of 4, with many engines at 2.5

6.0 Deep Sjeng CT 2010
6.0 Deep Shredder 12

Crosstable available at my blogpage, ultracastle00.blogspot.com

Rybka won its last 2 games to pull ahead of Houdini, but Houdini beat Sjeng in the last round to force a G/5 + 3 playoff. After 8 games, Houdini won in Sudden Death.

Komodo had a fantastic result, but had it not suffered a shocking defeat to Deep Fritz, the engine might have had a shot at first place.

Naum, after a fantastic first half, could not keep up and suffered several losses to finish with an even score.

I'll have the PGN files ready for submission for this event, plus the PGN files from the freeware competition, as well as a makeshift file for the 50 lost games.

Quick update for you guys....

The next tournament wont be starting for some time.  I have to deal with important things. (Aka get a job)

Also, this is off-topic but, I need to sell some of my chess equipment.  Also, I have video games and poker chips to get rid of too.

Send me a pm if you wish to help out.

An update for you guys regarding Season 4

The Derivative Engines Championship will be next, probably followed by the Original engines competition.

There will also be the Supertournament and Season 4 Championship

The Swiss, Knockout, and Olympiad I am not currently planning.  I need to find a job before devoting more time for this engine project.  The perils of being an amateur tester sad

The PGN Files I promised to be released will be released.  I dont know how to to attach fikes on Chess2u.  Only on the CCRL site.
