Abstract/Summary

Newborn and Hyatt recently tested the chess-engine CRAFTY on two test sets of 16 positions each. The performance of an engine making greater use of endgame tables (EGTs) is compared with that of CRAFTY. Reference is made to three other articles in which composed positions have been used to test a variety of chess engines. Supporting data here comprises two pgn files, an annotated-pgn file and the original data worksheets used.
