A first Chess program was written by C. Marche, G. Le Blanc, and J. Rivat in 1990. With this experience, J. Rivat rewrote everything using [[Bitboards|bitboards]]. After [[Robert Hyatt]] started using bitboards too, long discussions on ics and sharing new ideas permitted to improve considerably the technique.

The search algorithm is using [[Principal Variation Search|PVS]] with [[Null Move Pruning|nullmove]], [[Transposition Table|Extended Transposition Table]], [[Refutation Table]], [[Internal Iterative Deepening]], several classical [[Extensions|extensions]] schemes (like [[Check Extensions|incheck extension]], [[Recapture Extensions|recaptures]]).
