Starting Mammoth Engine Tournament

Post by bezzy3004 » Wed Jan 14, 2009 6:50 pm

I have started a 37 engine, 1 min blitz tournament tournament with most free engines above 2500 elo i have included fritz 11 as its my default program and considering its now 10th in elo ratings it wont do much harm including it. Its a Round robin each playing each engine 4 times 2 white 2 black total of around 2650 games all playing with fritz book and no end tables, no permanant brain, on my fairly powerfull pc. Amd64x2 5000+ 3.2gb ram, vista 32bit i will post running top 10 scores every 100 games Place your top 3 predictions now? Tournament should take a couple of weeks or so. who do you think will win place your bets and please keep watching, the engines will be:
Those i have omited i had trouble downloading.
