Thanks Graham,

Unfortunately I haven't made any significant progress since 0.51.

I'll log in when I can (assuming my blood pressure can take it)!

Neither have I. I've added some features (MultiPV, personalities) but haven't improved the strength. Still, these tournaments are fun to watch, even if I don't have a stronger version of my engine competing.

Maverick is off to a fast start.

Hi Erik,

Yes - Maverick seems to be doing well so far. I'm sure statistics will catch up with it soon.

I've played a lot with the evaluation function and nothing seems to add any measurable strength. I'm about to try automatic tuning. Let's see!
