#Chess, (SharpChess, Sharp Chess)
a WinBoard compliant open source chess program by Albert Bertilsson, written in C# to run under Microsoft Windows with .NET framework. The project has been finished in early 2003 in favour to Sharper written in C++ [1].


#Chess uses an 8x8 board maintained by a negamax alpha-beta search with transposition table inside an iterative deepening loop. Evaluation is primarily due to material balance (MB) - a positional bonus based on piece-square tables might be skipped by lazy evaluation if MB is at least 50 centipawns outside the alpha-beta window. #Chess features a peft and divide command [2].
