The other posters in this thread (especially Dieter Buerssner)
already provided detailed analyses of and good hints for
improving your null-move code.

For some in-depth reading material about null-move pruning,
I just like to point you to my book on "Scalable Search in
Computer Chess" (http://supertech.lcs.mit.edu/~heinz/node1.html)
and to the preprints of my publications, available online from
my personal WWW pages at http://supertech.lcs.mit.edu/~heinz/.

Please enjoy and have fun with your chess programming!
