Re: It's here ...Honey X6

Fine just for fun result s- just 20 positions chosen at random using 'jot'. 'Bluefish' is pretty cool, it is as tough as nails and it plays some pretty interesting chess I would definitely check out that engine, some pretty nice coding by Eelco de Groot. Time to complete: 19:29:36 20 rounds and 1120...

Re: It's here ...Honey X6

<huge snip> Thank you Mike for the explanations, much clearer now. For scoring of course it is your decision what is default.
