Minko's pretty good. I played it against crafty(using chesswizard professional level) and it beat it hands down. The main disadvantage according to me is that it's slow compared to crafty. If you play a move in crafty, it tries to predict your next move and when you make that move it replies almost instantly. Minko OTOH has to build the whole tree(not sure about that) every time you make a move such that it takes almost a minute for it to make the simplest and most obvious next move like evading a check. All in all, not bad...
