There was a missed chance to punish here with Bb7, but hey, 13 year old kid.

Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

What does your program do in this?

fen 4k2r/pb3p2/2p1p2p/1p2q3/p1p5/2Pr1B2/2Q2PPP/R4RK1 w - - 0 1

Provide full search for a five minute run.

For extra credit beyond getting the best move, name the (human) players in the position.

For some bizarre reason, my program prefers Rfe1 instead of ab, much to my disappointment.
