Martin Thoresen's open letter to the community from last year. ...
... I don't know if the Superfinal of Season 9 will happen. I don't know if Season 10 will happen...
My Opinion is TCEC is died for ever. :( :(

Well THAT'S no good! How come all this time people are not even talking about it and asking for it to be done?
It doesn't bother me if it didn't happen on time, but not at ALL? That is a totally different story.
Last season was crazy long. This is not necesary.

U better chat in the official TCEC website and will probably get the latest information. There are a few hardcore TCEC fanboys who keep loging on that website and keep chatting everyday.

I often go there and no one has a clue.
They discuss other things.
Not much contiguity.

I had no problem with the length of the contest.
I thought the whole thing was boiling with excitement.
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.
