Re: Hakkapeliitta TCEC, dev relase

Aaaaand right after I write that I am able to replicate the bug. Typical. Basically, it is a combination of high search depths, the hash table working as it should and checking for time only after 10000 nodes have been searched, and not the time allocation. The fix seems to be rather simple as well....

Re: Checks in qsearch - must-have or optional?
