Final Standings

Post by Graham Banks » Sun Mar 09, 2014 1:12 am

45TH AMATEUR SERIES (Division 6)

Intel i5 Quad
ChessGUI
256mb hash each where possible
3-4-5 piece tablebases
Ponder off
Graham2014-1F.cgb book
40 moves in 25 minutes repeating (adapted for the CCRL)
2 cycles 30 rounds
All engines 64-bit where available
The top engine will gain automatic promotion. Any other changes of division will be at my discretion and may not necessarily involve playoff matches. This will be the final series that OliThink is able to participate in unless a new version is publicly released before the next series.

Hi everyone! Well, I'm still alive although it has been quite difficult staying that way. I guess I'm just a fighter like RomiChess, lol. Following this tournament was like watching Romi being chased by a pack of ravenous wolves, managing to stay just one step ahead. One of the most exciting times I've had in a long time :). Thanks Graham. Time to get a new RomiChess ready, but only if I can improve on version p3k.

Welcome back Michael. :)
Congratulations on the tournament victory and I really do hope that you can release a new version at some stage.

Still time to update. :)

Yes - I live in Auckland.
You're lucky you came when you did, as it doesn't look we'll be opening the borders anytime soon.

Hi Graham,
until when do you need to know when I have an update for the tournament?
It's now OliThink 5.4.2, Maybe there is another version coming in the next days.

Hi Oliver,

I'll check that I have the latest before I start, which is probably 9 days from now.

Great. It's 4.5.8 already. A lot of ideas and small steps.
