I thought of Crafty as well before I saw Steve's reply. It's a free open-source engine with a long history. Not sure about the sponsorship. You could try contacting the Chess Club and Scholastic Centre of St. Louis where the US champs have been held recently. The event has attracted much more fundin...

I'm afraid I don't know either. There a few programs here, but I don't know if they do what you want.

I like the idea of a customised opening book database for my repertoire. I might just create that. Putting it together would be instructive in itself.

Well done with your project! I agree that Chessbin is probably not a name you would want to keep! Not sure about an alternative though...

Game 6 may have been quieter from a tactical point of view, but the psychological battle is utterly fascinating. Topalov's self imposed 'Sofia Rules' seem to be leading to a battle between the players not to offer draws, and to achieve some kind of moral victory by forcing the other guy to accept th...

If they go on like this there's no need for anti-draw rules! :o

I’m going to say Topolov - just a feeling!

Topalov is a bit more interesting than Anand though :wink: - that's the problem, there are no real characters in chess now!!
