Problem with an epd string

Can someone tell me what is wrong with the following epd string? Stcokfish handles it with no problems but Crafty bombs on it after about 14 plies?? Here is the position:

1B1kBKn1/3p4/3NPp2/8/1P1N4/r7/q5r1/7b w - -

Maybe someone can shed some light on this for me.

Thanks,

Les

Right vs Left handed chess players (IM and GM)

Is anyone out here aware of where I can get this kind of information? Perhaps somebody out here already has it! I would like to get a list of rated chess players (IM and GM preferably) and whether they are left handed or right handed. Can someone out here help me out?

Thanks,

Les
