Chess engine: Eubos 2.9

Eubos - a  basic Java chess engine, written for kicks. Uses jcpi for the UCI protocol parts. Kind of weak, doesn't evaluate for king safety, for example. Now uses transpostion hashing, but because it runs in the Java VM on a bog standard PC, doesn't search very deeply (around 100K Nodes/s, though this is actually quite hard to evaluate due to the hashing).  Author: Chris Bolt  Rating CEDR= 2072 v.2.9 Features This is the first Eubos release which incorporates a selective search. All previous releases have been Shannon type-A searches, only utilising Beta pruning Added Late Move Reductions to the PlySearcher After the first 6 moves at any ply deeper than 3, the search depth can be reduced by depth/4 There are the usual exemptions Tuning / Optimisation / Tweaks DrawChecker is now expanded as the game progresses Fixes Bug fixed where, if the game length exceeded 150 moves, the DrawChecker would cause a crash To install Eubos as an engine in Arena: 1.

Chess engine: Expositor

Expositor is a UCI-conforming chess engine for AMD64 / Intel 64 systems. Author: Kade You can play against her on Lichess or download a copy for local use. Expositor does not yet have a CCRL rating, but from private testing I estimate her CCRL rating to be between 3000 and 3100 Elo. There are no command line options, but the engine does support some nonstandard commands; for more information, start Expositor and enter help. Note that the transposition table is effectively cleared between searches.
