I was ready to post my updates to Tunguska, so it's nice someone already did it, thanks!

It still pretty weak, but certainly ~100 ELO stronger than the previous version.

Yes, it seems it jumped from 2141 to 2509 in 40/4, which is way above my expectations, so I better wait to see if that is correct :mrgreen:

It is going to lose some Elos probably, up to now it has played against much weaker opponents but that will be corrected.
