Only a hopeless idiot would gamble his head and play 7...Ke6 in a position where Black has an almost decisive advantage.
Simply 7...g6 8.Qd5+ Kg7 9.Qxe4 e5 and black has full central control and a totally dominating position.
1990s-early 2000s, I think.
Houdini 2.0 steamrolls white off the board by first using pawn gambits to develope a winning initiative, then starts regaining lost material until white has no useful moves for the remainder of the game:
you're right this would annoy Fritz 13. He would say "You want to move there? Are you sure about it?" (He has a speaking function and mouths off to me)
Houdini's Houdini. It's not a chess program, it's a god
I have developed a very weak chess program for young kids bellow age of ten, which simulates kids of 6,7,8 years. I decided to put position to it and even it took some advantage immediately. And ten years back there were already many strong engines around. Even twenty years back Fritz 2 and 3 ( on DOS) were playing like masters. Chess Master 2000 was also fairly good.
I still have many such programs. Many of them can still work.
And a lot of them fell to this thing in their time. I rest my case. :)
