All these these recorded wins against any engine are Correspondance games when the human is using an engine aswell.
And you know this how?
this is probably what you all want to see :)
No, Nemeth's are blitz games, and he's not using an engine...
well all you need to know is the algorythm of the engine, there are always some criticle cases. Once you know them attack on its weakness. but for that you need to be a programmer and GM as well ;)
I just watched a lecture video from Ben Finegold(St. Louis Chess Club) on You-Tube where he makes a point that when his opponent(a human) is thinking a long time over a move, he invariably makes the wrong move. This is normal time OTB of course, but does having days to ponder over a move give a human an edge? Or is there a point of diminishing return? ie think long think wrong? :)
Looks like he closed his account himself.
What was the result of the two centaur games you played against him?
The score was 0-0. He never challenged me.
Did you ever play Daeth? Are they even still around?
Oh boy, some people are unable to understand simple things...
Here is the position from my game- it's white's turn to play.
Feed it to Houdini 2.0c or any other engine, and let him think for as long as you please.
After calculating "everything" he will come up with either Ne1 or Kh2, with a close to equal evaluation - but both moves are losing. Factly, Kh2 isn't losing either, as long as white follows the "inferior" plan of keeping the knight passively on g2.
The correct move is either Rc1 or Ra1, which is regarded as way inferior by Houdini, but it draws instead: Black cannot break into white's fortress, despite the fact white having effectively no white squared control at all.
Interesting post. I tried this position on my computer,a fairly powerful one with Houdini 4 pro.
At 30 ply (15 minutes thinking) it prefers Kh2 -0.48, then Ra1 -0.49, and Rc1 -0.61. It means that the engine has improved but it's not quite there yet.
My intention was not to prove IM pfren wrong, which he is not, of course; I just wanted to test my hardware.
