SF still kicks in round-robins, but competition is getting stronger.

Re: evaluation that usually go up when you are winning

Evaluation staying planted at +13 only means the engine is unable to find a clear-cut game continuation where white forces the win of more material. Which is normal because.. well, it's almost the starting position and the search tree is still immense:)

Re: armageddon in norway chess

I like the altibox chess rules, but they kind of make the play a bit bipolar. Games start out slow, but at some stage they begin to speed up quite a lot due the unusual time controls.. and if there is a draw, armaggeddon makes play go from bipolar to outright schizophrenic :roll: No wonder some play...
