GridProtector,
a cluster chess program by Kai Himstedt as successor of GridChess and Cluster Toga incorporating Raimund Heid's open source engine Protector as primary searcher, and Crafty by Robert Hyatt as proxy engine, which performs no tree search itself but has some kind of a master role to control the optimistic pondering with distributed worker clients. GridProtector had its debut the PT 49 operated by Timo Haupt - losing from later winner, massive parallel Jonny and runner-up Shredder on 16 cores, shared third along with Hiarcs and 5/7 .
