Igel 3.0.0 is ahead of Houdini 6 at the rating list. It's now in 3th place ( I don' t count the Stockfish clone Fat Fritz).

Congratulations to Volodymyr Shcherbyna and Dietrich Kappe.
I believe Volodymyr is producing his own nets now

Re: inclusive chess?

I played a couple of games with my friend where rules were changed so that Queen was acting as a king.

Re: 84th Amateur Series Division 6

So far holding pretty well.

Re: Endgame recognition

In the chess engine i just check if there are any non-pawn pieces for the side i want to try NPM for (white have BKP, so i can do NMP; black have KPPPP, so i cant)

In my chess variant engine i just have some non-pawn-material threshold, if the side to move have more material than it, i do NMP

Re: Sorting moves during move ordering

In vast majority of cases your engine would get a cutt-off after 1 or 2 moves tried, so sorting all moves is generally not good

Thank you for the tournaments.
So many great games, and great choice of streaming on YouTube, where it is possible to rewind stream to watch the previous game / analyze interesting position.

P.S. I must say i enjoy Drofa`s images (both for 2.1.0 and 2.0.0) every time i see them :D
