Does anyone have a summary of the Leela exhibition matches played between divisions? They don't seem to be on the TCEC archive.

Oof! Having crashed in three out of five games, Chiron will no longer be playing in the tournament. I haven't heard whether they will let Fizbo come up from Division 1 to replace Chiron.

1. Leela bonus games can be found here http://tcec.chessdom.com/bonus/archive.php
2. When an engine is disqualified due to 3 crashes, the division will continue with the rest of engines because replacing with another engine will need additional work and distorts the natural flow of games. However, the replacement could be done if an engine is withdrawn before the division starts.

We reached halfway point of Premier Division. Stockfish and Komodo are tied in top two spots with 1.5 point advantage over Houdini. Jonny and Ginkgo are also tied and fighting hard to avoid relegation to Division 1.

The Premiere division is finished, with Komodo and Stockfish going on to the superfinal match. Jonny will return to division 1 next season, and Chiron is also demoted for crashing three times.

Nice and interesting to see Komodo 12 winning this round despite the big difference in elo with Stockfish. It was also close to see Stockfish dev not reaching the superfinal :)
