Tournament of the Engines
This is my first blog, and will probably be pretty boring, but to all those who are still reading...
I have started a tournament in Lucas chess with its 34 default chess engines, and in this tournament each side gets 120 minutes. As my computer spends days going through the games I will update as all of the games progress. The engines are Alaric 707, Amyan 1.62, Bikjump 2.01, Cheng 4, Chispa 4, Cinnamon 1.2b, Clarabit 1.00, Critter 1.6a, Cyrano 06B17, Daydreamer 1.75, Discocheck 5.2, Fruit 2.3.1, Gaia 3.5, Garbochess 2.20, Gaviota 1.0, Glaurung 2.2, Godel 3.4.9, Greko 12, Hamsters 0.5, Komodo 5.1r2, Lime v 66, Pawny 0.3.1, Rhetoric 1.4.1, Roce 0.0390, Rocinante 2.0, Rodent 1.6, Rybka 2.3.2a, Simplex 0.9.8, Stockfish 6, Tarrasch Toy Engine Beta V0.905, Texel 1.05, Toga deepTogaNPS 1.9.6, Ufim 8.02, and Umko 0.7. These engines have all been set to their defaults and the tournament started. All of the engines who get at least 1/2 a point in the first round will go on to the next.
The first game to go down was the Alaric 707 vs Amyan 1.62
This next game was the longest at 197 moves, but it was cool because it was the first actual checkmate so far. Gaviota 1.0 vs Glaurung 2.2.
The next game for today was Komodo 5.1r2 vs Lime v 66. Komodo won this game, which isn't to much of a suprise to me because Komodo is the most likely the 2nd strongest engine in this tournament.
This game was between Roce 0.0390 and Rocinante 2.0 nothing to much out of the ordinary.
This next game I was looking forward too because it was Rodent 1.6 vs Rybka 2.3.2a. I was excited for it because on http://chessok.com/?page_id=357 it said that Rybka was one of the world's strongest chess engines. But I imgine that all of the other engines in this tournament could be classified like that too. Rodent tied with Rybka.
