Is gridchess a crafty variant on a cluster machine?
Either you didn't read their description or you didn't understand it. It's IMPOSSIBLE to implement YBWC in Toga without making significant changes.
Because Toga is in fact used as a UCI engine without changes. (See Kai's thesis for details).
Pages 96-99 is a high level overview. Reference 1 was the paper I was referring to. Its actually not his thesis (which was done years earlier I think at the U of Hamburg).
Somewhere on my computer I have Reference 1, his 14 page 2005 article in ICGA. It was an interesting read. I have to fly to AMS in a few hours, so I can't locate it right now.
Shredder by Stefan Meyer-Kahlen has already won nine titles as World Computer Chess Champion, is leading in all important computer chess rating lists and is accepted as the best chess programs for PCs. Please see www.shredderchess.com for more information.
"That raises an interesting point. If a website claims its product is the best, when it is, and then another product beats it - does the first have an obligation to change the data on their website?"
Yep, they have to change it.
Maybe to something like "one of the best programs in the world". :)
Hope they had updated their engine. :-) cheap, very cheap.
IMO last ditch effort to cheat innocent chess fans by false claims and grab their money. Same goes with fritz, they talk as if it's still the best in the world and so much happening thing.
I respect Chess master better since they don't claim they have the strongest engine.
"Same goes with fritz"
I always thought Fritz was the strongest engine until I heard someone talk about Rybka in the Kramnik Forum during the Kramnik vs Deep Fritz 10 battle. I then downloaded the beta version and tested it against Fritz 8 and I was impressed by the way it beats Fritz 8.
"I respect Chess master better since they don't claim they have the strongest engine"
Me too, plus I would recommend it (Chessmaster) to anyone who would like to study chess, because of it's tutorials and different styles of personalities.
live on Playchess.
Naum has not participated in Paderborn yet, and Junior neither I think (at leat not in recent years).
On a serious note about Paderborn I think the timing between Christmas and New year makes it difficult for some to enter.
> OK, maybe they were afraid of Hiarcs in the time between their retirement and the beginning of the "Rybka era" :-) (even if you didn't participate in tournaments in that time... or maybe they were afraid of Shredder or Hydra?)
Good, point taken, don't know what they were afraid of, but they were afraid of something :-)
I guess Harvey would agree to that now.

I didn't look up all these tournaments now, but I think Hiarcs (WCh. 1993) quit the world championships even earlier, for a period of several years. It is possible though that it was in the Dutch tournaments, like in 2007 (the tournament history at www.csvn.nl is incomplete, unfortunately).
I remember that M.Uniacke was quoted several times, in the sense of "I only participate if I see a chance to win."
From other top programs, Tiger's last WCh. participation was 2001 and King didn't participate between 1996 and 2006. All of that may partially explain the long series of titles for either Junior or Shredder, although of course nobody can claim that they wouldn't have won anyway, in those years.
Well, seeing as Hiarcs has been participating in these international tournaments lately, i.e. since December 2005, Mark has obviously changed his position!
Barbequed Hiarcs wads
1 lb of ground Hiarcs
One medium onion
1/2 c. bread crumbs
1 large egg
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/3 cup water
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
3/4 c. ketchup
2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup milk
Mince onion. Combine the ground Hiarcs, onion, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, egg and milk. Make into wads and cook in oil. Remove Hiarcs wads with slotted spoon. Add ketchup, water, mustard, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce to pan and bring to boil.
Return Hiarcs wads to the pan and simmer until hot.
It's strange that Deep Blue played 13.O-O only because of a lost connection, but still played the horrible 16.c4, not realizing the severly compromized kingside...
