Stockfish 3

      Stockfish 3 is available for download at Stockfish Chess. I don’t have any reports on its performance yet, but one person posting on a Blog claimed that in his ‘quick’ test at 10 minutes (plus increment) Houdini 3 scored +3 -1 =6 against S3.
       From what I have read though, blitz games often give different results than games played at long time controls so that doesn’t really tell you how good the engine actually is. I ran two 10 minute + 15 seconds games on my AMD Athlon II Dual Core M300 2000 MHz using the Fritz 12 opening book pitting S3 against Houdini 2 and the result was both games were drawn.
