Is the nodes per second number tend to grow when program search position more
advanced in the game? When there are less pieces on the board.

I just speeded my program in around 30% and tried to find where my nps is now.
Went to the Fritz 6 counter (Fritz engin inside of Hiarcs package) and was
disappointed. Fritz still keep me at the safe distance at the end of the game.
This is due to the strange (for me) fact that Fritz numbers goes up at the end
of the game. This time in mine nps goes down. In mine program less are the
pieces on the board, less efficency in the search of the legal moves. Wanted to
see if there are some general tendency in all programs. Before asking here my
question, went to see Rebel 10. Its numbers looks like to be very stable. No big
difference between heavy initial and final positions. Once again difference with
my program.

Thanks for response,
