This is so full of crap, and anyway 9.Ng4 is an invalid move, I think you meant Ng3.
Yeah, 9.Ng3 is what he meant. The rest of the moves are correct. To get it into PGN shape, you'd have to clean it up a bit (e.g. change several occurences of ch to +).
First example of a game is not played by Houdini 1.5 on a strong computer that's for sure. Nothing more to do here.
Sorry, but this is just stupid, Houdini on full strength doesn't make mistakes like 24... Ba4 or 27... Rh5. You must've done something wrong in preferences. Just a couple of things, can't bother to show all variations, mistakes and inaccuracies.
Maybe we could set up a match between you and Houdini 3 through the community...this will lay this to rest...
If a willing participant would come forth that owns Houdini 3...the two of you could continue to exchange moves in the forum and we could follow along with updated game sequence boards.... ?
Any takers, have this already been proven this is a sham ? Let's find out...
With random opening choices, Houdini will win easily; however, if this is a test of the soundness of the Two Knights' Defense then:
I believe that the Berliner Gambit and the alternative to the Berliner given in MCO 15 are both +- i.e. 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 d5 5.exd5 Nd4 6.c3 b5 7.Bf1 Nxd5 8.Ne4 Qh4? (Ne6 9.Bxb5ch Bd7 10.Bc4 +/-) 9.Ng3 Bg4 10.f3+- or 9.Ng3 Bb7 +-. The Ulvestad where Black plays 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 d5 5.exd5 b5 6.Bf1 h6 (book according to MCO 15) is +-. The Wilkes Barre/Traxler 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 Bc5 is +/- The main line 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 d5 5.exd5 Na5 6.Bb5ch c6 7.dxc6 bxc6 8.Qf3 is only +/=, and a tougher test. Houdini should win in the main line. It is also likely that Houdini will win with Black in the Fried Liver (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 d5 5.exd5 Nxd5 6.Nxf7) because the Fried Liver is close to equal; the Lolli looks equal, but Houdini may not know correct book (Heisman Variation---1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 d5 5.exd5 Nxd5 6.d4 Nxd4!=); if it plays known book it might well lose. I'd be happy to take on Houdini 3 to test any of these openings with the understanding I'll be lucky to draw in the main line or against 5...Nxd5. Since I can't play endgames well then an evaluation of +- in the late middlegame should be an adequate test.
Yeah, drawing probably is attainable if you have Houdini 3 and so does the person you'd be playing...it wouldn't be rocket science...
what was the time control setting for Houdini 3?
The problem is not time control; the problem is I bought a POS from a mass outlet that rhymes with smart. It has 4 GB memory and 325 GB hard drive, but a celeron!! processor. My lap top is running through molasses between Windows 8 and the Houdini program; my computer guy is building me a computer that can run the optimum systems requirement of the program.
I would also win against 4-ply Houdini :D
The only "proof" that I am playing the game not just relying on Houdini 3 (which I will only use to blunder check) is that my choices will, occasionally, differ from Houdini's choices.
