Fide WCC2016

I'm lying here around in the hospital (nothing very serious) searching for a good livestream with comments of the 3rd round, can you help me? I have only a tablet (iPad) and an Android-mobile with me... thanks in advance.

Greens, Thomas

Re: help me in the csvn tournament

Folkert, can you give us some information when the engine is calculating ? Because I have started QueenBee, but it seems to do nothing except some "keep-alive" and latency-measurements... CPU usage close to 0%...
