Test Position: Bd3!

Can your engine find Bd3?

Many engines prefer Nf3 with =+ but when Bd3 is played, it is += or even +-.

Seems like a problem of move ordering (Note that PB2007 has been faster than H12 for test moves lately.)

This is a great test position :D Which game is it from? - looks like a kasparov move to me

Out of all the free chess engines i tested again Spike 1.2 Turin performed the best.
In 5min 43 sec

I note with some of the engines the line Qg3h3 h6xg5 Be2d3 g7g6....... is chosen which in many ways is similar

Glad you liked it :-), I think the position is taken from the game Efim Geller vs Andronico Yap, Moscow 1986.
