Re: 13th ACCA World Computer Rapid Chess Championships

The voting has finished and the weekend will be that of Dec 7/8.

The web pages will be up soon. You should get your ICC temp account soon to test your connections....

Remember: the program that finishes last is the one that doesn't enter.

Best regards,

Charles

Re: 13th ACCA World Computer Rapid Chess Championships

Will the tournament be played on the ICC? Will it be possible to watch it? I remember few years ago it was possible to register a free seven-days account on ICC but on the website it now says you need full membership to watch. We usually have it on ICC. We have tried an alternate venue (HGM's serve...

Re: 13th ACCA World Computer Rapid Chess Championships

Could you supply more information about this tournament? Is there a link to your website? Is there a fee for entry? Are you testing the programs yourself or are the users expected to log on the ICS? Polls are not visible on my version of TalkChess. How do expect to collect the votes? The tournament...

Re: 13th ACCA World Computer Rapid Chess Championships

So far: John Stanback says he can NOT on Oct 12-13, Oct 19-20, and Oct 26-27. Oct 12/13 is bad due to conflict with GSEI. Richard Pijl says he can NOT on Nov 30/Dec 1. Richard prefers we not have it on Nov 2/3, Nov 23/24 and Dec 14/15 but can if necessary. Some others have said all dates are fine (h...

From this, I'll create a list of dates left and then we'll vote on the date. We are discussing weekends between Oct 5 and Dec 21 (inclu...
