I didn't think engines resigned...
I beat Fritz 12 but only on its gimped "2100" mode at best. It should really drop the queen's pawn games as white as it doesn't know how to play against the Dutch or Queen's Indian systems or 1...d5 as black. On its inflated but still very strong over 3000 "unleashed" it crushes anything, even on 10 minutes per side!
The last person I said that to was called Kasparov! Who was really making the moves? Vishy? Yeah, it even has resign text.
It is 10000% lie and wrong.I have tested hudoni moves.Many weak moves have been in game that hudoni can never move.It might be a forced victory over the engine.
fantasies are fun
It is 10000% lie and wrong.
What a bull$hitter!
The moves by White display the 'depth' of minimum 22+ moves. If truly of such potential, the kid wouldn't need 35 moves to beat Shredder set at 1800 Elo, that's too many moves!
Those who lie like this should at least get their hands around the computer chess programs before 'castling' in the air.
Houdini 3 would beat Shredder (set to 1800 Elo) within 30 moves in every single game, and not by resignation, but with a complete check mate.
The game he posted is clearly some engine vs engine match.
But he could make some money writing. I really like his added spice, like "my dog's name is Adam, and my nephew is autistic"... as if autism is not a handicap but some sort of weird gift of intellect, without which the story won't be believable.
autism is not necessarily a handicap when it comes to intellectual pursuits like chessSEE: ROBERT FISCHER
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
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....
