New Engine Houdini 5

Chess King 2017 Platinum and Platinum Pro versions contain the brand new Houdini 5 and Houdini 5 Pro engine with 200 ELO more than the previous generation of Houdini. Houdini 5 is about 200 Elo stronger than its predecessor thanks to its completely rewritten positional evaluation function and many new techniques and ideas developed over the past three years. More aggressive King safety and sophisticated piece mobility are the keys to Houdini 5’s unique playing style, combining aggressive ideas with sound positional judgment and plans. A development version of Houdini 5 achieved a resounding victory with a score of 56/62 (50 wins and 12 draws) in the TCEC Season 9 Rapid tournament that featured the best 32 engines in the world. The final release version of Houdini 5 is about 30 Elo stronger than the engine that played in the TCEC tournament.
