I expected this :) Shredder is way too strong for fruit. In fact, I think that Shredder can beat fruit even if you handicap it with two pawns.

Well.... I've taken this position:

rnbqkbnr/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PP2PPPP/RNBQKBNR w KQkq - 0 1
(sorry, don't know how to attach pictures)

...where white has the initiative, but it's 2 pawns down.

I've let Shredder 8 play Fruit 2 in an Athlon64 2800, both engines with 128 Mb hash, 40'/40+40'/40+40', two games.

I tried something similar before, but I forgot to enable castling.

Any guess about who wins?
I'll post the results & PGN tomorrow
