Re: Need work-around to get engine to custom settings

As a followup, this is for the CCC. (www.chess.com/ccc). I'd be happy to pay for someone's time who knows how to get this addressed. PM me!

Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

Next event will start right around October 1st. We will have all new versions of all engines at that time.

We are leaning toward doing a shorter Blitz event. I know that many of you have mostly been focused on other events with LONG time controls. What are your thoughts on Blitz (like 5|2)?

Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

I'm looking to put together an easy email list of engine developers for the CCC so I can communicate with them about changes, receive updates, etc. I'm missing contact info for: Crafty (I actually have it, but worried it will go to SPAM and can't include "Crafty" in every subject line :) ) Gull (may...

Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

We may consider doing TB adjudication in the future. That said, our time controls are short, and I believe we've seen some interesting games and positions because we haven't adjudicated. I'm open to suggestions! Perhaps for TB draws... but for wins, let's see it played out!?

Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

Hello all. Update time. After extensive discussions, we have decided to turn Ponder OFF at this time (for Stage 2). We recognize that there are some irregularities with how threads are being allocated in some engines and situations, and until we figure that out, we are going to play it safe. That sa...

Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

I wanted to share one more thing: I understand that several people raised concerns about the event settings before we started - including Norm! I’d like to explain why I continued on with the initial plan anyway. As far as I personally understood, the warnings were that using ponder would result in ...
