Topolino e Eta Beta [1] [2]

a chess engine by Antonia Jeanrenaud, competing the WCCC 2006 in Turin. EtaBeta, written in Visual Basic, is not a conventional alpha-beta searcher, but uses an own approach to analyse and select a move. Alessandro Scotti on EtaBeta: "This program is the most original I know of, and the only one with the evaluation of a move as written comment on why the move is good or not. Unfortunately, the search of Etabeta is too shallow compared to more traditional algorithms, and often remains victim of combinations it realizes too late" [3] .
