In a previous paper presented at CEC'2011, we reported the implementation of a chess engine based on evo- lutionary programming with a selection mechanism that relied on grandmaster's chess games. The objective was to decide the virtual players that would pass to the following generation. Here, we use these same techniques to adjust a larger number of weights (29 in this work instead of the 5 used in the previous one). The aim was to improve the rating of our chess engine. We also introduce… Expand
