Houdini 2.0c: How to Install, Activate, and Use the Most Powerful Chess Engine

in addition to the free houdini engines, many chess players own chessbase, and use it for opening and endgame databases, a program that has an extensive arsenal of analysis capabilities, including nalimov tablebases as the primary method for finding variations and shoring up weaknesses. the chessbase engines themselves are open source, and there are many versions [10] out there, including fritz, fire, and pgn search engines. fritz has a number of gui variations: chessbase, fritz vs houdini, chessbase vs houdini, chess vs fritz [11] , and even a piano busting gui, though you need to own a digital piano (or play it on a midi-compatible piano). if you don't own one, you can play this from a computer keyboard or midi keyboard:

Houdini 2.0c UCI Chess Engine Full Version

test #3: the team at houdini have also developed a number of new endgame tablebases. these include a completely new endgame tablebase called bazzini-dumas-playdougherty, also known as the maroczy legacy (from the system used in the bruce x2 engine). it is very powerful, and can boast that the kasparov-larsen tablebase is the weakest of the collection and can be forced to draw.

test #4: having spent quite a bit of time testing houdini 7a (the engine which was incidentally my secondary choice for chessbase 14), i have turned my attention to houdini 7. ive been quite disappointed in the engine, but was encouraged by the learning i had witnessed from the early versions of the engine in the houdini chess journal (vol. 1, no. 6, 09/01/2006). i checked out the new version, the first of its kind to be written by a team of houdini engine developers led by mark lefler (mark has subsequently moved on to work on the cheaperhoudini engine at chessstation, inc.), and tried it out. houdini 7a took 558 seconds to solve the first problem. houdini 7 took 2497 seconds. the speed difference of 539 seconds is so insignificant that it seems it was worth downloading, even though its predecessor was already installed.
