The Turk [1] [2] [3] [4]

The Turk,
a WinBoard compliant open source chess engine by Yakup İpek written in C#. The Turk applies alpha-beta PVS with null move pruning and late move reductions inside the iterative deepening framework with aspiration windows. Move ordering is enhanced by history heuristic and killer heuristic, and by MVV/LVA in quiescence search [5].
