Well actually Eugene it is what I do already. Sorry, I should have stated this
more clearly in my post. I don't use 12x12 or 10x12. I use 16x16 (actually I
just need 16x12).

I don't even need to add 0x20... That's why I think 16x12 is more efficient than
0x88, and this comes from close examination of what a typical chess program does
most of the time.
