Re: CCRL 40/15, 40/2 and FRC lists updated (14th March 2020)

Thanks,
Tom

Spotted this in the posting for the new version of Ethereal

11.96 Resolve fail-highs with progressively shallower searches

Re: Put that PGN into the MRI

What a great tool to give to the community!

Ed, thank you.

We have never met, but I have admired all the stuff you have accomplished with Rebel and related engines for a long time.
