Hi Sedat,

Welcome back! It's tough to stay away from doing any testing.

Hi Sedat,

Are your tournaments only open to ctg books?

I am asking since some people are trying to promote the completely free and open Polyglot book format. This format is easy to implement and is already understood by a number of programs (most recently Hamsters).

There are a number of publicly available PG books. It would be interesting to test these as well.

Regards,
Michel

PS. I went through the trouble of writing out a detailed specification of the PG format at http://alpha.uhasselt.be/Research/Algeb ... ormat.html
