Carballo Chess Engine


Two months ago I read a post about Toledo Nanochess in Microsiervos, and remembered my failed attemps to make a chess program in Pascal/Assembler when I was younger. So 13 years later I wrote my chess program from scratch in Java. I did it in two months at after-hours, reading a lot at the Chess Programming Wiki, and here is the result:

Play Against Carballo Chess Engine

It is a work-in progress, but a good framework to test some ideas in chess programming and good enought to play some interesting games against it (well, actually I am not able to win it, but I am a very poor chess player).

Now I’m mounting my kitchen from Ikea, so I haven’t time to improve Carballo, but in a near future I’ll continue working on it.
