The German computer chess magazin CSS has recently published a _scientific_
engine test ( CSS "Worldmaster Test"). The results for current Bringer 1.9 betas
are slightly below Rebel Century and slightly above Shredder, Chessmaster and
Hiarcs 7.32 :-).

Also in cct-3 Bringer beat Hiarcs 8 alpha and drew Fritz and Shredder ;-)

OK - yes, it's possible and likely that Yace or Gromit are 100 points ahead of
Bringer still IMHO ( if we talk best amateurs) ..


PS: Duh - am I serious ? Dunno ;) - honest I am .
