Thank you for the link. What can you tell us about "Chess Ebiz 9"? It dropped a knight on move 13, followed by the queen for a knight on the next move, and was mated in 24 by Jonny.

I do not know anything about Chess Ebiz 9, but the programmer has written a few chess programs and has a wiki page here:

It's either very experimental or just buggy; all its games seem to proceed in similar "non-materialistic" fashion.

Thanks for this news and link.
Very strange when there are very few participants.
Some were not checked properly for bugs too.

All programs start somewhere, and with time and effort get stronger.
