Larry Kaufman, the editor of ICD's _Computer Chess Reports_, has proposed
a 25 problem test suite for chessplaying programs. I took the data posted
in the rec.games.chess newsgroup by Robert Hyatt last month and converted
it into SAN/FEN format.

(Format details can be found at the ftp site chess.uoknor.edu in the
directory pub/chess/SAN_testsuites in the two documenation files SAN and
FEN. The total number of test positions in the directory (not counting the
WAC_orig.ci file) is 4295. Of these positions, 89 are duplicates and one
is a triplicate. All are adapted from Warren Smith's ChessTest.tar.Z from
the ftp site external.nj.nec.com.)

Note that problems 3 and 6 are avoidance problems; the idea is to avoid the
"solution" move given.

I am unsure of the details of Kaufman's rating formulae. Perhaps someone
with more information on this could post the exact procedure.
