I recently installed several new engines that did not take part in the super-rapid play tournament. These were Ufim 8.02, Ruffian 1.05, Aristarch 4.50 and Petir 339d (Winboard). The hope was that they'd give my usual suspects a run for their money.

All 4 of them came in the bottom 5:

 

    Program                          Elo    +   -   Games   Score   Av.Op.  Draws

 

  1 TogaII                             : 2866  205 188    13    73.1 %   2692   23.1 %

  2 Rybka v2.2n2.mp.w32      : 2866  205 188    13    73.1 %   2692   23.1 %

  3 Cyclone 3.4                    : 2807  165 157    13    65.4 %   2697   38.5 %

  4 Bright-0.4a                     : 2781  201 191    13    61.5 %   2699   15.4 %

  5 Glaurung 2.2                   : 2781  175 169    13    61.5 %   2699   30.8 %

  6 Naum 2.0                        : 2755  185 179    13    57.7 %   2701   23.1 %

  7 Spike1.2                         : 2730  193 190    13    53.8 %   2703   15.4 %

  8 GFruit-4bx                      : 2730  193 190    13    53.8 %   2703   15.4 %

  9 Spike 1.0                        : 2680  190 193    13    46.2 %   2707   15.4 %

 10 Petir399d                       : 2680  146 148    13    46.2 %   2707   46.2 %

 11 Zappa                            : 2602  203 222    13    34.6 %   2713    7.7 %

 12 Aristarch 4.50                 : 2574  196 215    13    30.8 %   2715   15.4 %

 13 Ruffian_105                    : 2574  196 215    13    30.8 %   2715   15.4 %

 14 Ufim802                         : 2376  179 246    13    11.5 %   2730   23.1 %


 

At least Rybka came joint top this time.

The time controls were 5 seconds/move in the hope to bring better play to the engines. This favoured the slower but higher-rated engines such as Glaurung and Naum.

 

The top 5 finishers will be taking place in another 5 second/move tournament shortly, but will play more games against one another in the hope to find the true rapid play champion...
