Home * Engines * Embracer

a Winboard compliant chess engine by Benny Antonsson, written in C++. The project started in 1999, very much inspired from the instructive code of TSCP but with many changes and optimizations and a rather impressive speed of ~300.000 NPS on a 800 MHz CPU [1]. Embracer was first released in December 2001 [2].
