Re: The unofficial world championships in draughts international 2017

Hi Krzysztof, Congrats for your great initiative. 1- Which was the hash table size used for Flits? 2- I guess would be useful try to create a shared opening book for all engines or at least think about disable it.

Re: PDN 3.1 Proposal Requests

Hi Igor, Thanks for your feedback! If it is helpful I can add an extra column that indicates if the pieces are placed on the dark or on the light squares.
