Strelka (rus. Стрелка) is a computer chess engine for Windows, developed by Yuri Osipov. In total, five versions of the program have been developed. The current version, 5.5, supports only the 32-bit core. As of early 2012, Strelka is one of the strongest chess programs in the world, according to the blitz rating sheet and the strongest in Russia.

I don't know why, Strelka 5.5 is in two locations on chess.com but the first one is on page 2, which is the one I downloaded. I installed it into my Fritz 12 Gui and it works fine. I think it is a great engine and with a few improvments could be the best.
1. Make it Deep Strelka, 8 core or more and USE THEM (many engines say they are multicore but their strength does not change from 2 core to 8 core)
2. The score is not very accurate, often it will give itself 2.0 or more and still lose or draw. Many other engines have the same problem. The one exception is Houdini 2.0 (I don't know about Houdini 3) if it gives itself a score of 0.5 it will not lose. If it gives itself a score of 1.0 or more IT WILL WIN! And that is my favorite thing about Houdini. But anyway the Strelka people are definitely on the right track.
PS The one on page 2 is a 64 bit
for those who dont know how to use it ...
first u need to install a chess GUI......i use arena
in this there is an option of installing engine....
go there and from there click on the source of this file....it will definitely run......i already installed houdini and now strelka....it works great
no result only black program
hey how to operate this one !
could somebody please help me out of this !
It is spam.
the author of the engine forgot to divide the pawn value by 2 during reverse engineering of houdini hence it gives weird analysis score although plays at the strength which is typically of the order of its source code engine (which is houdini 1.5 in this case)
An excellent chess engine, indeed.... :)
