null-move is not much code. You can do this in 10-20-30 lines depending on how you implement it.
yepp, you and Dann are right, 11 lines of code and + 2 ply depth :-)

thx,
Srdja

Do you store and retrieve the best move from hash?
yes, that works fine.
What exactly did not work about aspiration windows?
i think i implemented it correctly, but there is no decreasement of searched nodes to observe...maybe i have to take care of my PVS implementation with my ID-Framework.

That is normal: PVS and aspiration window are both fishing in the same pond. When you already have PVS, the aspiration window will not add as much anymore.
