Hamsters 0.2 is very close in rating to Homer 2.0, I honestly did NOT expected this close result out of 40 games in standard chess. That remains to be verified in FRC or Chess960. My opinion is that Homer 2.0 might be 10 or 20 rating points higher than hamsters 2.0 in FRC

And under Arena GUI Homer 2.0 is performing better than Hamster 2.0 so far ...............

Homer does NOT play FRC properly under Shredder GUI. I tried it, it didn't work, and the author confirmed that it had a serious bug. When he fixes it, I'd be delighted to play it.

I thought Baron only played FRC under Arena. Is that right ? If that's the case, it can't enter this list.
