Home * Engines * GopherCheck

an UCI compliant open source chess engine by Stephen Lovell, written in the Go programming language, first released in June 2016 [1] available under the MIT license. GopherCheck supports a parallel search, defaulting to one search process (goroutine) [2] per logical core. GopherCheck is bitboard based and determines sliding piece attacks with magic bitboards with plain, homogenous arrays, which performed better than the common fancy implementations whith individual table sizes, thus less memory but variable shift while calculating the index [3].
