Baracuda2015  (.abk , .bkt , .cgb , .ctg )

Well balanced book for testing engines.

60 new well balanced 8-moves positions.

383 draw opening positions ( no advantage for any side more than 30 centipawns (+-0.30)) after move 8.

All opening positions from previous book re-analysed , some  are excluded because of low wining percentage.

Don t need additional settings because there is no bad moves in this book,
but You can change the "Number of games" ("Variety of play") scale to
change the percentage of openings.

Just load into Your favorite GUI ( Arena , Shredder , ChessGUI or Fritz ) and enjoy.

Some of the positions are a little polar.
Here are all the positions I saw with an evaluation of at least 40 centipawns:

The book is very well done in general.
I have found many opening books where you fall out getting checkmated.  Comes from following GM lines too deeply.
