GM Wesley So's novelty move "19…gxf5" in the Grünfeld Indian @ round 3 game Vs GM Maxim Rodshtein of Israel during the 2010 Biel Young Grandmaster Tournament was adjudged fifth placer in the "Yearbook Novelty of the Year 2010" award.

I already have it. Houdini 1.5a rocks!

Steps:

Preparation -You must have a chess GUI or carrier chess program already installed in your PC that accepts chess engines in order to integrate Houdini.

1. Download the engine file (it is in .zip format). Don't worry, Houdini 1.5a engine is FREE.
2. Extract the file in the engine folder of your chess GUI. I use my old commercial Shredder 9 GUI. You can choose from either 64-bit or 32-bit depending on your windows operating system.
3. Open your Chess (GUI) program and look for the Engine menu. Click it.
4. Click Create UCI Engine
5. Browse for the file you extracted inside your Engine folder. Click OK.
6. Now change your engine from the original to your new Houdini 1.5a. Start a game.
7. You are ready to rock and roll!


Thanks Mang Heruino!

To those who want to try this, here it is courtesy of Mang Heruino.
Been using rybka with Tarrasch as my GUI (rybka is loaded with Tarrasch) but i got intrigued since i heard that Wesley changed to Houdini and then i saw in chessbomb the TCEC elite match between the commercial rybka4 and the freeware (yes it's free and only donations are asked to be freely given!) where houdini is kicking rybka's butt!


Houdini homepage suggests Arena and Winboard to be used as interface but i can't seem to figure out how to make it work so i fiddled with my tarrasch gui and i'm happy with the result.

World’s Top Junior Chess Players by Age (February 2011)
by joeyj
February 7, 2011


Image



Less has been written about our very own GM Wesley So PHI as the current 8th youngest ever to barged into FIDE’s International Grandmaster (GM) rank. This he accomplished on December 7, 2007 at the age of 14 years, 1 month and 28 days to become the seventh youngest GM in history during that time.

Additionally, as of January 2011 FIDE Rating, Wesley So with an ELO of 2673 is now ranked 3rd among the World’s Top Juniors. GMs Fabiano Caruana ITA(2721) and Anish Giri NED(2686) are 1st & 2nd respectively.

FIDE Top 10 Juniors ( January 2011 Rating)

In the recently published “FIDE Rating of Top Junior Players by Age (February 2011)” by Chessbase.com on 05.02.2011, GM Wesley So, was among the top six elite junior players in Chess history that registered high ratings in their Junior’s years (19 years old & below) See chart below.

Source: http://www.chessbase.com


The chart produced by Sander van Noort is about strength-to-age scale. This reflects how strong the juniors were at different ages. It also describes the latest ratings of the top junior players plotted against the age at which they reached them. The chart already includes the latest results from Tata Steel Chess 2011.

As we can see Wesley So (born Oct 9, 1993) was the youngest to breached the 2600 mark. Officially, he did it on October 2008 FIDE rating list with 2610 ELO at the age of 14 yrs 11 months and 22 days. Magnus Carlsen (born Nov 30, 1990) was second-youngest and made it at the age of 15 years and 31 days on January 2006 FIDE list with 2625 ELO. Sergey Karjakin (born Jan 12, 1990) was 3rd and he did it on April 2005 FIDE List with 2635 ELO at age 15 yrs 2 months and 19 days.

Based on AGE, on or before they turned 15 years old , officially, Wesley So was 1st with 2610 ELO (Oct 2008 FIDE rating), Sergey Karjakin was 2nd with 2599 ELO (Jan 2005 FIDE rating) and Magnus Carlsen was 3rd with 2560 ELO (Oct 2005).

From AGE 15 onward, Magnus Carlsen was the highest ever (1st to break the 2700 & 2800 ELO barrier) with Anish Giri (born June 28, 1994) the youngest among the six players was impressively surging to 2nd place starting before he turned 16 years old. With his Live Rating @ 2696.3 after Tata Steel Chess 2011 Grp “A” scoring 6.5/13 with a Tournament Performance Rating (TPR) of 2744, Anish Giri is the second-strongest sixteen-year-old in history, Sergey Karjakin third, Wesley So fourth, Fabiano Caruana (born July 30, 1992) fifth & Maxime Vachier-Lagrave (born Oct 21, 1990) at sixth strongest.

As I initially posted the strength-to-age chart @ Barangay Wesley’s (BW) Sitio Pacland (philboxing.com) & also @ BW’s main Hq at chessgames.com or CG it solicited interesting comments and observations which provided additional inputs and inspiration to this piece of writing (Paclanders: mac.phogi, lsqc2003, Azrael, Mang Heruino, Davepinoy, Jamaal Worthy, iron jaw, dyolens, davidstrumm ; and at CG: mysql & iking)

At Sitio Pacland, BW … Davepinoy commented on the parallelism of Wesley & Giri’s performance from age 14 to 15 though Wesley performed in a higher plane at that time. After that, Giri’s improved sharply (with the steepest curve among the six elite players) owing to his coach(es) while Wesley has none. He also added that, both has inherent potential in them but Giri's natural abilities was further released and guided by his coach and had overtaken Wesley. The good news however, he added, that Wesley’s potential had not really been tapped by a top coach! Jamaal Worthy added that only if his BIG IFs (legitimate & dedicated East European Coach & seconds he termed “Team So” as well as participations in Top European Tournaments), has been satisfied … “there's no doubt in my mind his ELO rating will shoot to the roof...THIS YEAR!!!”

At BW’s Hall @ CG … mysql & iking were discussing about Wesley & Karjakin. Mysql said … “Wes and Karjakin seem to have a similar development. Not bad.” Iking responded … “Karjakin pala ka level ni Wesley, whew! Better than Caruana and LaGrave, a little lower than Giri and Carlsen! What an Elite Group!” and Mysql added “All those other juniors are in Europe and have a coach/had a coach at some point. It's impressive that bro Wes managed to hang with these guys.”

My response to their kibitz @ CG was … Pls take note ... Karjakin born Jan 12, 1990 starting @ age 19, his ELO went down to 2706 (Jan 2009). By then, he decided to transfer to Russia from Ukraine. His decision as reported by chessvibes.com was “mostly because of the coaches. And I also need to train with good coaches and there are a few good coaches in Russia, for example Yuri Dokhoian, who worked with Garry Kasparov and now in this tournament he is working with me”. Additionally, he said … “This decision was made because I didn’t have enough support inside the country, in Ukraine”.

This decision produced remarkable results since then, and as of January 2011 Karjakin FIDE ELO went up @ alltime high of 2776 and ranked 5th in the world. Therefore, Karjakin formula was completely accurate !

Going back to Wesley So, as Rusticbull also a ka-BW @ CG wrote “Reason to celebrate” in his blog @ chesswindows.blogspot.com … “the global Filipino chess community has all the reasons to celebrate … Wesley continues to give us the reason” !!!

Anyone knows the full chess tournament schedule of Wesley for the rest of 2011?

So far, he had participated in the Tata Steel chess tourney; and he is entered in the Aeroflot Swiss Open which is to commence tomorrow.

The only other tournament I know where I think he is to participate is in the World Cup which will be held I think, sometime in July or August.
