Iron Raptor [1]

a private chess engine by Steve Webber. Raptor had its tournament debut in 2013, when it participated at the CCT15 [2], and played the CCT16 and a strong WCRCC 2015 gaining a fourth place and 6/9, where its parallel search used 8 threads under Windows 8 [3]. Raptor further participated at the ICGA WCCC 2016 and WCSC 2016 at Leiden University, operated and represented by opening book author Wolfgang Zugrav, with a strong 4th place at the uniform platform tournament ahead of HIARCS, Ginkgo and The Baron. A few weeks later, Raptor was quite successful in rapid chess at the WCRCC 2016, 7th place with 8½/15.
