Your time is pretty good and mainly on a position that can kill few programs.

If you could indicate what kind of searcher you used, it will be good. Some kind
of specialized one that is independent in your program? Like mate solver, or you
have some kind of solver in the variation that, probably, is called "check

What usual difference in time of search hash table represent? Never mind for
this position or in general. Even if you want, just indicate some mate
containing position with different time that it can take.

Thanks in advance,
