Changing Horizons

Sherwood, Russell  Sunday, December 30, 2018

A few years ago I undertook a review of the engines utilised by Correspondence players. Out of interest, I have started to re-run the survey over the last few days.

So what do we see (currently based on a small sample size)

56% of players appear to use Chessbase

27% utilise SF10

20% utilise Stockfish derivatives

18% utilise Komodo 12.3

7% utilise Houdini

So what about the other 28% - This is evenly split between older SF and Komodo versions, plus a few Fritz's


Deduce what you wish from this? I will give mine as the sample size increases!
