It seems that the program calculate perft 1 perft 2,... and stop when it finds
perft that takes more than 75 seconds.

Yes smirf is very fast
Probably faster than movei(I do not use hash for perft and
was not interested in making it faster after it was fast enough).

I will check later the speed of perft with the latest version with fast

I do not use makemove for the last ply because there is no need to do it with
legal move generator.

My makemove also does expensive things like updating the attack tables to
prepare generating next move and calculating evaluation except mobility so it
will be very expensive to use makemove in the last ply.
