why are people picking bad openings? I already said there will be no opening book used
i changed it to red btw
Interesting to see how long you guys last. I don't want to be pessimistic, but if you're giving Houdini an entire day to think on its move, I predict white will be lost in under 25 moves.
@gabrielconroy Houdini will be thinking only over night. I would have shortened it but I want good results and not a quick think and I need my computer during the day. However, about 9 hours on average is sure to be very strong, chess.com is going to have a tough time for sure.
Tbh, I think it would probably win quite comfortably if it only had five minutes per move.
I've never fought a grizzly bear either....
9 hours is rather short, almost blitz. Is that enough for the illusionist ?
@PatzerLars yeah i told Houdini and he won my queen a move later.touchy.
hey this got moved to off topic! This isnt off topic, this is chess!
im not sure deacon21, I havent kept up with the rating. Usually the creators overestimate it with something like 3300
Just wanted to make sure it has a chance considering our bullet proof opening repertoire (1. a3 .. etc.). I hate to see chess engines losing.
Nah, I'm just scared.
as I said, creaters highly overestimate their engines. Official elo rating is 3253 (I have the old free version, not the new one that cost money)
Is the Caro-Kann the opening I was searching for or should I go for 1...e5 ?
