an experimental chess engine by Folkert van Heusden, written in Java. It is a partial rewrite of Pos. Pos was a wild experiment, while DeepBrutePos is a more conventional brute force negamax with alpha-beta program, using iterative deepening with transposition table and quiescence search within a multithreaded implementation. It "talks" both the XBoard and UCI protocols.
Apart from being a regular chess engine, it also includes a "puppet master" mode with which it presents itself as an UCI- or XBoard engine and underneath talks to UCI or XBoard engines running on other systems. For each move it asks them what move to do and then selects the most common suggested one .
