I am puzzled about pondering when
playing matches with two chess engines
on a single PC, using WinBoard (under Windows 98).
While one side is 'thinking' about the next move,
should it not get all the computer time
available? Then, at the same time, how can
the opponent get computer time to ponder?
Does it steal it?
