Rick48-v4 is a Winboard chess engine employing a revolutionary Active Space Algorithm (ASA). Unique playing style is combined with deep understanding of positional and strategic(!) subtleties. A sophisticated time management is another strong point in longer games. Rick48 outplays his opponents in an invisible way gaining frequently huge time advantage. Looks like the era of 'brute force' searchers is coming to an end.
