Houdini 1.5 leads TCEC comp. chess tourn

Advanced chess "centaur" players should be interested by the following:

A "super" tournament for computers, named TCEC, just started. Premier Division finals started with the participation of the world's top engines.

Tournament format: double round robin

The participants:

1 Houdini 1.5
2 Rybka 4.0
3 Shredder 12.0
4 Stockfish 2.0.1
5 Naum 4.2
6 Ivanhoe B47cB
7 Hiarcs 13.2
8 Critter 0.9

I don't know much on this tournament, actually it may be a CCRL/SSDF system-like but as a tournament (and without rating list?), anyway thus it was able to reach the chess news in Chessdom & Susan Polgar blogspot.

The point is that the supposed "possible" Rybka-clones Ivanhoe & Houdini (both based on Ippolit, just like Firebird) entered the race... and Houdini is leading already, ahead of Rybka.

It is announced that Rybka 4 is playing, does anyone know who's behind this version of Rybka and what is the hardware? Does Vasik Rajlich know about that?

Houdini 1.5 : 24 pts, Rybka 4 : 23 pts

Things are still unclear in this engines tournament...

Is it over, or do Rybka & Houdini have a playoff?

Ah, maybe it was finished already... So Houdini wins with no loss! Bad score for Hiarcs 13.2 & Naum 4.2 :/ Dunno what can be concluded from all this, we all knew that Rybka & Houdini are the best engines nowadays.

Its not over - it is a close match

1 Houdini 1.5a + 6 = 17 - 4
2 Rybka 4.0 + 4 = 17 - 6

and 13 games to go....
