About Chiron Chess Engine

Chiron is a chess playing engine with support of both UCI and Winboard 2 protocols. Development of Chiron started in the fall of 2002 and it has been under continuous development ever since. When it debuted at the Italian Computer Chess Championship in June 2003, it was a rather weak Winboard engine with a playing strength of about 2100 Elo points. Its strength grew over the years, it started to arrive consistently second at the Italian tournaments and reached good ratings in the various rating lists. In 2006 support of UCI protocols was added. Starting from Feburary 2009, having lost the source code of the latest  versions, it underwent a major rewrite. In November of the same year it won, with an old version, its first Italian championship and won it again in 2010.
