Hi,

Previously I've primarily been known for working on ABK Book Bash, basically Arena opening book tournaments. I'm wondering if anybody has any wishes for me to do something else as well. Maybe Stockfish 4 vs Houdini 3 tests. Maybe CTG opening book tournament.

Either way, for the sake of statistical certainty, I will most likely only be able to do one of the two because I want many games done, especially for the Stockfish vs Houdini testing... Now I think about it, Stockfish 4 testing will be a headache, will have to do another 500, 1000 games. That will take FOREVER and a half. I will of course, try to fine tune each engine to perform the best I can get it to. CPU is 4670k and will be set at either 4.5 or 4.6ghz. The time controls I typically do are 10 minutes per game or longer. I prefer not to do blitz games.

Let me know... More ABK testing, CTG testing, or Stockfish 4 vs Houdini 3 testing? Or something else?
Or do you not care? I guess that's an option too! lol

I'm not guaranteeing anything, but I'd like to gauge the community's interest (or lack thereof).

If I do the Stockfish test, I will use the latest beta build at the time, maybe contact the Stockfish team, see when is a good time to begin testing after their latest beta build is out.

I'm still busying doing other tests. Working on analysis on a few openings for book makers.
Still wondering if I should wait for Houdini 4. :D

Well, the computing ability of the engine affects the results of the tournament. The stronger the computing hardware, longer the time controls, stronger the engine software, the more a book with less moves but higher quality moves is preferred and the more powerful the engine without book is.

Look at ABk Book Bash III... The giant majority of books got beaten by Houdini 3 without a book. Many contestants simply got eliminated before more games were done to save time because they were so far behind. Considering there are so many CTG books out there, redoing the tourney for the new engines will be very expensive on time, since I want a longer time control and many, many games for statistical reliability.
