The Chess Programming Wiki is a repository of information about programming computers to play chess. Our goal is to provide a reference for every aspect of chess-programming, information about programmers, researcher and engines. You'll find different ways to implement LMR and bitboard stuff like best magics for most dense magic bitboard tables. For didactic purposes, the CPW-Engine has been developed by some wiki members. You can start browsing using the left-hand navigation bar. All of our content is arranged hierarchically, so you can see every page by following just those links. If you are looking for a specific page or catchword you can use the search box on top. You will notice updating progress almost daily.

CPW was founded by Mark Lefler on October 26, 2007 [1], first hosted on Wikispaces [2]. Due to that site closure [3], it moved to its present new host at
