BremboCE,
a WinBoard compliant chess engine written by Gianluca Cisana. BremboCE was initially written in C, and first released in February 2002, after Gianluca studied Tom Kerrigan's TSCP and learned how to program a chess engine [1]. It had its not too bad tournament debut at CIPS 2002 with 3/6. The latest C-version 0.4 from August 2002 is still available for download . The engine name is based upon the river Brembo in the Province of Bergamo, situated near the author's home [2].

Java

After a gap of seven years, in 2009, Gianluca continued the development porting BremboCE from C to Java, running either as standalone WinBoard engine, or as Java applet as part of a web page under control of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) - in a process separated from the web browser. BremboCE keeps a board array and uses negamax alpha-beta with quiescence considering captures and promotions. The Java engine played the 4th Chess Computer Cup 2009 with 2½/6, winning from Golem and Joker.
