The 10th season of TCEC may have been the most interesting of all seasons. The three muskeeters met once again at the top and equally shared three available crowns. I'm not interested in constructing a spectacular article about which one is stronger. I just think they are very close to each other and generating an obvious difference seems very difficult between them, even with such extreme hardware used by TCEC organisers.
We've seen Houdini reaching 70 MNps in some starting positions and Stockfish floating around 55. It was impressive to see 43 threads running together. All that's left to do is to thank all TCEC team for the great show they delivered to chess lovers.

By the way, you should not miss the great article published by Chessbase which included comments by the authors of Houdini and Komodo. A must read for all:

I all ready have it, but I want to create my own opening book..
About critter I've downloaded Hex Editor App by First Row and searched for the 17th byte but the 02 that need to be changed wasn't present.How to deal with this?
About critter,I've downloaded the Hex Editor App by First Row and searched for the 17th byte.The 02 value that needs to be changed wasn't present.How to deal with this?Thanks.
Paulzzz, I think hex editor won't work if u are an android user, because as much I know, the bin format of Windows is not readable by an android app, I've tried many them...
No, it's possible through the android application. I edited via HexEditor app. Everything works well.
look in 1st paragraph
7F 45 ......
00 00 ......
02 it is to be changed to 03 and save , exit n use in droidfish
i also use hex editor in android its free
can u suggest me minimum no. of games to be played as a tournament ?
i m a bit confuse
firenzina 2.4.1 beats stockfish 7 n also komodo 8 ( i m only using free engine which is supported in my android device n chess tournament app )
i think My mobile chess rating goes
Yes i also used hexeditor app on android.Works great
Hi,Chysiddh can you provide me link for firenzina2.4.1?? because there is nothing on the web and i also try its official site and file downloaded but empty.there is nothing. and please mention if any editing necessary in the file.
u can either download from website
n modify like critter 02 to 03 if not working
it doesn't work in my device ( modifying like critter also )
it works modifying like critter
it feels strong in my android beating stockfish7 2 times in chess tournament app
Thanks a lot Chysiddh it work great and it may be possible to set threads if possible then how?tell me
Well, I don't know, but can you tell me how to create bin file using hexeditor ? Pretend I have some opening moves for both sides, (example) 1.e5 c5 2.nf3 d6 3.d5 cxd5.. it's a bit long opening, now how to make a bin file from it?
Rahul Srivastav - open fire.cfg file with notepad and set the follow, and save changes.
 Firenzina 2.4.2 xTreme default fire.cfg
Hi, Alex i did what you mention above but it didn't work for Firenzina 2.4.3xTreme. cfa shows engine failed to run.
Actually, i want to run Firenzina 2.4.3 xTreme for a month but every times failed.
Rahul same problem here
i also want firenzina 2.4.3
there is app called md chess in playstore
copy of Droidfish
so i think chess fan n software engineer please modify adding chess tournament
n someone please kindly ans me
which type of tournament to play with chess engine
so as to have minmum no. of games
to have strong chess engines face each other
( plz dont say knockout )
Hi chyssidh14,thanks on your tip I've saw the 02 value now and critter works both in DroidFish,CEPA and CfA.Btw,critter's opening book works in cfa and it's still good.
Regarding engine tournaments/matches I'm using Chess Tournament&CEPA by javiolo and also CfA.Acid Ape Chess in my opinion is overrated and as pointed out by Alexei, many engines have problem working on that GUI
Why there isn't an apps on the earth to convert pgn to bin file ? I'm tired of searching Google...
i use chess tournament app as well
but i need a format to battle the engine
like rapiddroid or tcec
to generate own ranking ( only for my personal use ) but i need less games
tournament format i needed actually
Round Robin or Gauntlet
both produces a lot of games.......
i usually game between 1 vs 1
then another 1 vs 1
who wins or same elo matching them again
but some engine plays alot of game while others not
yesterday firenzina beats every chess engine evn stockfish7
now what happened it losses n win with other chess engine
i use default settings in chess tournament app
yesterday game pgn
please answer why it is stronger yesterday
You have something wrong. Stockfish 7 is stronger than Firenzina on any machine and in any shell. One and two batches are not enough for a reliable result (dozens, hundreds and sometimes thousands of games are needed).
Hi,sir Alexie today i made match between andscacs, critter and firenzina and i saw that Andscacs lost engine in all game against every engine at cfa why?? before this i didn't use andscacs at cfa.
Less games: Not a good idea. For a good list, 200 games per engine are necessary. Don't forget that TCEC has a list with many complications. In Rapidroid, i always check the ELO trend with graphics and i see that stability starts after 9-10 rounds. Approx 180-200 games.
You've got some specific issue with Andscacs. I confirm zero abnormal termination in Rapidroid after 400+ games. Ranking will soon be published as soon as i get back home.
I need to watch the games (throw them to me), but I did not have problems with Andscacs in CFA.
Rahul Srivastav, the .cfg file must be in the same folder with engine (if i remember correctly, you need to install .cfg file as "engine" to the CFA). P.S. Same .cfg file working for both Firenzina 2.4.2 and Firenzina 2.4.3. Also read comment about engine here http://chesstroid.blogspot.gr/2016/12/android-uci-engine-update-firenzina-243.html
Hi, Alex first i uninstall the cfa and reinstall cfa after that i did Firenzina 2.4.3 default fire.cfg file edite like below/above mention and install both file as engine in cfa but it show,engine failed to run/program cannot run"/
Thanks for information,i will be trying to install,perhaps one day it will be.Thanks
Okay Rahul, the problem is empty space in engine name, original name is (Firenzina_2.4.3 AP_uci.arm7.pie) rename it to Firenzina_2.4.3_AP_uci.arm7.pie, i just tried it, it is working, don't install .cfg file to the CFA, just keep it in the same folder with the engine.
Great catch by Alex. I remember now that i'd suffered the same way with Firenzina and healed after renaming months ago.
Should i rename the file in fire.cfg (and it will be great if you send me the link by doing what is necessary in firenzina please) i think i am confused how to do.
Rahul here it is, keep fire.cfg file in the same folder with the engine, don't add it to CFA, (i've set threads to min 4 - max 4, you can set more or less by yourself, you know how :) )
Rahul, engine is renamed and .cfg file is ok, you can use them.
Alex, now i install your rename firenzina in cfa and cfa show engine exits. I think android naugat is bad for chess and don't worry there are more engine too why are we spending much time for only firenzina.probably,in some months sir Alexie and Gurcan can provide us stronger engine then firenzina.
But thanks thanks thanks a lot for help me by heartily.
Rahul, so you did all that's described in this post and still exits? http://chesstroid.blogspot.com/2016/12/android-uci-engine-update-firenzina-243.html?m=1
Is it 2.4.3 or 2.4.1 in your case?
Sir Gurcan,firenzina2.4.1 is run nice and great.
the proplem is with firezina2.4.3.
