Chess.Com vs Houdini!

    I've actually never really known an engine to calculate 1... c5 as its best first move so I think Houdini must have been using an opening book for this game. It generally considers e6 and e5 as better, but that's because wafflemaster is correct in that engines don't play their openings as well as humans can (but engines can get away with it). For instance a lot of engines will suggest 1. Nc3 (the Dunst opening), which I'm under the impression that some opening theorists think isn't fantastic.

    Really?? How long did you let it run for? I'm running Houdini now and it's listing c5 as third, with e5 first and e6 second. Interesting.

    i actually dont rememberthe first time control, but I do remember it saying e5 right up to the move and then it popped out c5, which surprised me

    You haven't confirmed the unanimous cxd and Houdini's response, so we're all waiting for that to happen.

    ok I will. I just felt like there as been a lot less voting lately.

    Houdini's reply will be out shortly

    That's just because the recent move was obvious, don't get disheartened, people will come along once the position gets more interesting.
