Swiss Edition III. Promotion

Post by Sergio Martinez » Mon May 29, 2017 2:43 pm

- GUI : Arena 3.51
- Swiss system tournament. The engines will be divided into groups of 80, the first five divisions, and the rest into the promotion group. Ten engines will gain automatic promotion and the bottom engines will gain automatic relegation except in the promotion group that will promote 20 and therefore 20 other engines will be relegated from Group E.
- Time control: 40/4 (adapted to the CCRL benchmark). I will surely run, after this tournament, another Swiss tournament of 40/40 adapted to CCRL.
- Ponder off
- Threads : 1
- Default hash=256Mb,
- Endgame tablebases: Syzygy -- Nalimov -- Scorpio Bitbases -- Gaviota ---64Mb hash
- Resign is set to -5 for 3 consecutive moves where able.
- Updates will not be allowed during each tournament (each division)
- Open to all Winboard and UCI engines (free, private and commercial).
- The similarity tool will be used to determine whether or not an engine can participate (Engines allowed until 70% of moves match).
- Results will be rated only for engines already in the CCRL lists.
- All engines will use the same opening book limited to an 8 move depth.
- Engine authors can either post their wish for their engine to participate or contact through email (sergiomg24@hotmail.com) or private message. I will choose engines by myself too.



For all those who are interested, the registration for the promotion group is still open.

The promotion tournament will begin when the rest of the groups finish.

To the authors who are interested, please reply here or send an email to the address indicated above.

Thank you very much.
Member of the CCRL Group. Write me if you want I test your engine.

Hola Sergio,

Should all new engines participate from the promotion group, no matter how strong they could be? For example, RuyDos seems too strong for this group.

Great tournaments, keep up the good work.

Regards.

Hi Carlos :)

Well, there are other ways to make the new engines directly ascending to their corresponding group (I remember the systems of Leo Djiskman or Olivier for example) but being tournaments of a fast time control and making them so fast, I understand that for now, each engine " will win "his position, at least for now I will do so.

There are too many engines (and news) and the truth is that it is often difficult to determine the strength of each before the tournament begins and thus, even if they take more time, it is more just.

Thank you very much :D

I liked Leo's system. He made the new engine face 3 engines from the bottom group, I think it was matches of 4 games. If the new engine got more than 50% of the total points, it faced other 3 engines from the next group and so on. Imagine there is a new engine with the strenght of Stockfish, it would take 5 seasons to get the right to play on group A. Just an idea. :wink:

It is an interesting system, but surely I would have to modify the groups.

Although I want to think about possible new engines.
