Re: TCEC Season 7 - Main Thread

Hi Frank, Every Season, people ask why "engine X" is not included instead of "engine Y", or why engine Z is there at all. Basically, the TCEC lineup varies slightly from Season to Season.

I didn't get a reply or answer about adding DON engine!

As always look forward to follow your tournament..

Re: TCEC Season 7 - Main Thread

Great news, Martin but can't you wait till Houdini 5 shows up? Without Houdini 5, we already know the final.... Stockfish - Komodo :wink: And Deep Hiarcs 15 is to be released this month as far as I know. Deep Fritz 14 and Vitruvius, even Zappa on huge hardware might provide some interesting results...

Re: Olympiad 2014 Fastest Game Ever?

It has been informed that FIDE is looking into this game to see whether it has been pre-arranged. If so, the organizers can ban the team(s) involved for the rest of the Olympiad.
