    This week I downloaded a free 14-trial version on Fruit 2.2.1.

    My early tests have been pretty impressive, beating Fritz 8 and Shredder 8. It scored 1.5/2 against Fritz 8 and 2/2 against Shredder 8. It also shows a rather unusual "style". Sometimes in closed positions it seems content to wait/solidify while letting the opponent screw up their position. Fruit seems well able to develop a "plan", and seems partial to pawn thrusts.

    I'd recommend anyone with Chessbase 9, or anothe UCI interface to download it and check it out.

    The following games were played with game 25 + 5 seconds per move time controls. In two games with Fritz 8, Fruit scored 1.5, and in two games with Shredder Fruit scored a perfect 2.

    In the first, Fruit demolishes Shredder with a creative temporary pawn sacrifice opening up the queenside. In the second (from the same position out of the opening), Shredder opts for a kingside attack on Fruit. Shredder fails to make progress for a while, despite giving himself a healthy advantage. Eventually, Shredder breaks through, and seems to have the game won. But short on time, Shredder played slightly innacurately. And with an open kingside position, and terrible pawn structure, Fruit calmly pushes his h-pawn to promotion.

    This is the match against fritz with the same time controls.

    In the first, Fruit shows its ability to make a plan by doubling up on the f file, and with some subtle move orders, forces fritz to conceed the exchange.

    How does this version of Fruit do against List 5.12? On my machine List 5.12 beats Fruit 2.1 badly, while Fruit is even against Hiarcs 9, and has a plus score against Fritz 8, Ruffian, Crafty 19.19, and many others.

    (Fruit, that's a nice name for a programm. Would be original if versions were called Fruit.apple, or Fruit.melon or something...)

    I don't have List. I have Junior 9 but haven't matched them up yet. I also don't know if there's any major improvements in Fruit 2.2.1 over 2.1. I only looked into it since I'd read it did well in a recent computer chess competition.

    I ran the engine match against Junior 9 over night. Fruit won both games. I'll post the actual games later ...

    Quit whining. I make my own moves, while my ~100 chess engines make theirs. I whipped one engine this morning with 3 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss.

    Do you run these engine matches on the same computer? I know that if you use 2 different program on the same computer you have to turn off think on opponents move, etc... because 1 program will use up more of the memory then the other one. They had an article about that on Chessbase.

    Yes, I run many engine matches on one computer. Well over 3000 games so far on my current box (bought in April). Both Arena and Fritz, which I use to run these tournaments, allow the choice to turn "permanent brain" off. I believe the default settings are off.

    With hyperthreading technology, this issue may be less critical, but its still off most of the time. I'm able to have a tournament running in Arena, Fritz running analysis of my recent finished games, and still have Firefox open with separate tabs for each of my online playing sites.

    Of course, if I open ChessMaster, everything slows down. That software hogs the CPU and RAM no matter what you do.

    I am not whining if I was I would bring up the fact fckallie beat me in 2 finals (doh! now look what you made me do...whine). Seriously I am not aiming anything at you, just merely echoing Ravello's feeling. Whining would not be my style if I had an issue with you I would come out and say it (but I do not), just like I did at gameknot this morning when a guy rated 300 points below me did not just beat me, he crushed me and although I was taking as long as 30 mins a move he literally made all his moves in seconds, in both games.

    Keep whining, and naming names. Someone is bound to object when his or her name is on the list. Then, we can have a real fight.

    Seriously, though, if you find too many engine threads, start some on other topics.
