Stockfish is an open source chess engine derived from Glaurung
It is not a complete chess program, but requires some UCI compatible
Graphical User Interface (like XBoard with PolyGlot, eboard, Jose,
Arena, Sigma Chess,
Shredder, Chess Partner, or Fritz) in order to be used comfortably.
It can use up to eight CPU cores in multiprocessor systems.
The maximum size of the transposition tables is eight gigabytes.
Its strength is comparable to the commercial Rybka chess
just ahead of Naum.
Stockfish is an alpha-beta searcher and uses a bitboard
