Also-Rans Update - June 9, 2013

I have updated the Also-Rans list.

If you follow the updates to the CCRL 40/4 rating list, you will see that all of the Also-Rans engines have been included (one goal accomplished :-) ). Currently, I am slowly producing games involving newer engines for the Also-Rans list. I expect the next update will take place in 2 to 3 months.


  1. Hi Adam,
    I notice with the under 1600 engines that the level of play can vary with the gui used. I can beat most of the under 1600 engines in Arena, but in Chessmaster the same engines play much better. Deep Trouble, for example, does poorly in Arena, but does well in Chessmaster. I think the CCRL uses ChessGUI for their testing but I am not sure how that compares to Arena or Chessmaster.
