77.Nc7??
Pawn hunting is fine but go for the a and h pawn. Just create a passed pawn on a2 or g2.

Are the blitz and uniform hardware tournaments yet to play ?

I second that. The WCCC has always been about having the best software you can on the best hardware you can get. Jonny did not have a single loss in the long time control WCCC and found some great moves. A very impressive job!

I look forward to the World Computer Software Championship that starts tomorrow. I believe the games will be broadcast here is you want to watch: https://icga.leidenuniv.nl/?page_id=1260. Unfortunately, free popcorn is not provided during the viewing!
