HOUDINI PLAYED LOUSY...
Im not sure if this is real, could be false but houndini didnt play well at all!
Amazing!, my daughter just beat houdini, heres the game
autism is not necessarily a handicap when it comes to intellectual pursuits like chessSEE: ROBERT FISCHER
Dude, they say Einstein too was autistic. So? There is a big population of autistic people in this world. Some times, some (very few in fact) of them appear quite smart at some extremely narrowed down subject. But for rest of their psychological and physiological aspects, they become handicapped. Almost incapable of socializing with others.
Autism is a serious problem, which is difficult to diagnose. If one, such as you and the thread starter, were to comment on it as if it were something positive to have happened to the kid, then at least you should meet some autistic kids. Once you do that, I am sure you will stop taking it as something positive. Through my work, I have met 100s of autistic children of different ages, and on many occasions. They need help, and care. And not to be viewed as some sort of gifted piece because of autism.
And barely any of them would show signs of extreme intellect narrowed down to any specific subject. I seriously hope Fischer was really autistic, otherwise he would have no excuse for being the demented cynic that he was.
Yep, the story's just too incredible to believe. I mean, who would actually name his dog Adam?
Anyway, the above quoted part of the OP's story doesn't quite seem to fit with his profile name and online USCF history. Maybe he'll have a good explanation for that.
He lives in NJ. I checked it out tonight. No record of him playing that I could find. How could this be in a database? I thought only rated games were on them; unless This was a "double" of a coincidently identical game played years ago.
Played 3 games in one tournament in March 2012. His post tournament rating was 807 (P3). He claimed an 1100 performance, whatever that means.
i hate to break it to you, but you nephew probably found a way to use the engine to help him win the game. No doubt he has talent, but if there was a kid that strong we would be hearing about this amazing kid who beats houdini. just stating my opinion. i have no doubt though that he does have a lot of tallent....
So then is Magnus Carlsen autistic? What do you guys think about Street Fighter players like Justin Wong or Daigo Umehara...
Tons of computer moves that most people wouldn't consider or think about. Stockfish seems to rate the game about even the whole time, almost all the moves are the top move or the second move. I doubt anyone, let alone an 8 year old or however old he was, could find those moves. I wouldn't even expect Carlsen to make some of those moves. If he's really that strong, send him to a major FIDE tournament so that I can know that it's real, he'd win all his games.
And in case you didn't, make sure the engine isn't on analyze when he's playing.
Dang. I can't believe this one's still going.
Wow, me too, Damon. I thought this had been locked months ago.
Stop this nonsense now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah chess titans, but all chess engines are beatable regardless what level. They have a pattern like the CPU controlled characters in fighting games...
This is completely false. Fighting games are games of psychology, Chess is a game of perfect information. I cant see anyone besides maybe Carlsen taking games from houdini
If your nephew really existed you would not be willing to NOT disclose his name because it would be a honour to have a win against Houdini playing fantastically perfectly like that.
On the other side, if your nephew was really a human and you would not be willing to DISCLOSE his name, it's because he's a personality, someone famous. Well, HE'S NOT!
I am all for freedom of speech but this kind of crap should be thrown out by the "monitors". Believe me, I do not want censorship but all the objections that the OP has suffered are quite warranted. I personally know masters who cannot outplay Houdini. Now can we pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee move on. Not only is the OP mocking our intelligence, but he is mocking Chess.
Calm down, Dear.
The threads purpose is our amusement!
