Little polish

Little polish is a program that plays Brazilian draughts (classics, 8x8 with international rules). Its main features are a powerful AI (using a fast, bitbase move generator, PVS, quiescent search, aspiration window search, a transposition table, and an end game DB), game analysis tools (a game tree viewer), and a small executable size.
