A Havannah bot programmed by Marcin Ciura and Piotr Wieczorek from Kraków.
Using MCTS with transposition table and RAVE; written in C++. Currently runs single-threaded on a 2.53 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, achieving 28000 light playouts per second on an empty board. An earlier version placed third out of five programs in the Havannah tournament at the 2010 Computer Olympiad in Kanazawa.
This instance only plays on size 5 board. It thinks over each move for five minutes. No more than one process runs at a time: games in progress with Lajkonik’s turn to move are queued.
