2008 ACCA President's Compter Chess Tournament

Post by CRoberson » Thu Apr 03, 2008 1:13 pm

The 2008 ACCA President's Tournament will be on April 19.
It is limited to engines whose authors reside and/or have
citizenship in any country of the Eastern hemisphere.
It will be a one day blitz tournament.

Registration and info pages can be found here:

Later today, I'll announce the date of the 2008 World Computer Rapid Chess Championships which will be open to all authors world-wide.

I am confused, Eastern or Western Hemisphere?

You say East but there are already 3 participating of USA

Spain is almost in half. Theoretically Spain belongs to the west.

Although I believe that this is a championship for America.

Assuming you mean 'Western hemisphere' in stead of Eastern:

The Netherlands has some Islands in the Carribean, and I have Dutch Citizenship. Does that mean I can register, or is the citizenship not enough, and does one actually have to live in that hemisphere?

I apologize for the confusion. I meant Western Hemisphere.
I suppose I should refrain from posting so early in the morning.

The rule is resident and/or have citizenship.

Oh, thats an interesting point. Vincent has debated several points
with me on the subject but has failed to mention that one. I guess
that puts you one up on him?

I'll take it into consideration.
