Nice to see the 20 possible opening moves, lots of new openings and very big fun.

Yes, now we get what is a REAL Computer World Championship!

I do hope they scaled back the number of participants a bit...just takes too long.

Wonderful news.
For me, this is the most exciting chess contest on the planet.
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.

This year TCEC support 6-men syzygy adjudication. Potentially saving a lot of time.

These are GREAT news, no matter what one 'Henk van den Belt' thinks. I don't think the organizers will hold him at gun point to watch the games but maybe they should for his comments.

I am looking forward to the event, hope we see another round without opening boos as those are very exciting to watch!
Best regards,
Miloš

Just watch the Stockfish clones playing strange moves. Good games will end in a draw.

Computer chess is all about dehumanization. Play chess yourself in real life with smacking, slurping, talking, annoying human opponents.
