I hope someone else hasn't pattented hurt/heal.
Basically pretty self-explanatory.
1. You may only vote once per day2. All options start at 5 points3. On each turn you hurt one engine and you heal one engine4. Hurting an engine brings its score down by two5. Healing an engine brings its score up one6. If an engine goes down to zero, it is eliminated7. Illegal votes are ignored8. Until January 10, no engines are voted on; during this time, anyone may mention a chess engine and it will become a candidate9. No engine may become a candidate after January 10th10. Sorry if I took someone elses idea with hurt/heal, but it is a great idea!

The Voting has been completed and the winner is Houdini!
I will start by mentioning Rybka, Houdini, and Fritz.
I will now edit my original post and add these to the candidate list.
the last engine standing wins.
If noone submits any engines before the 10th, then the game is aborted.
If an engine is not submitted, it isn't voted on.
heal capablanca hurt fritz
Sorry, the hurt/healing doesn't start until January 10th. Until then anything mentioned is just added to the things to be voted on. I thought this would be more fair as I don't claim to know about every chess engine on the planet that deserves a spot here.
Is capablanca a chess engine? or are you referring to the chess player capablanca?
junior, shredder, hiarcs, crafty, stockfish, tornado, delfi, the king (chessmaster), houdini, zappa, naum and critter are other engines
I added them. houdini was already there
Are you trying to figure out what engine is the most popular one? Sorry for dull question...
is capablanca a chess engine?
The hurt/healing has not yet started. Look at post #1
Ok. In your list both free and commercial engines are listed...probably these are different categories, I don't know...The winner among commercial engines in very clear (I just don't want to mention...). Among free engines the answer is not that clear... (but you know my choice:))
http://www.amateurschach.de/ - here is the list of engines, you might be interested in...
All the best!
Pls add Firebird and Ivanhoe
Critter is another engine.
Already got it.
I'm thinking of upping the date for the voting to start to Jan. 5.
if there are any obbjections, I'll stick with my original Jan10.
