CCT

Post by mjlef » Tue May 05, 2015 7:15 pm

I wanted to see when this year's CCT Computer Chess Tournament) might be, so I visited the CCT site here:

http://cctchess.com/

But it seems to just go to a default GoDaddy page. Does anyone know if Peter intends to continue CCT this year?

Peter has mostly moved on from computer chess:

The last post from him that the forum search function turned up was last summer.

Thanks for finding that. I wonder if anyone did "take the torch". I guess not since the domain has expired.

This is quite a bummer; I know some of the CCT tournaments were held on ICC which is where I play 24/7 Komodo 9 engine to engine matches. There are still a number of accounts like Arasanx and crafty solely created and registered for CCT-tournament play.

Hmm, since the match is listed as being in 2012, I will need to borrow someone's time machine.

mmhhh.... but on top it says "Posted on May 21st, 2015 by cctchess"
Let's hope he is trying to comeback with a tournament, copy pasted, and forgot to change the dates.
