New tournament starting soon at YLCET

Post by yorkman » Sat Mar 17, 2018 12:19 am

SF vs K vs H
Contempt=0 except for SF which will be default (12)
TC=25'+15"
225 games
Round robin
Top 2 winners go to Super Final. 100 games or less (if leader is winning by 10 pts)

Start date: Right after current SuperFinal X3 is finished.

Yorkman's opening book with lots of variety, mostly ~6 moves. Alternating colors.

All games will have live engines pv on display (for all depths) and you'll be able to also view engines pv for every move in archives.

Keep checking http://chess.my2dollars.ca for latest news, updates and discussions.

If you'd like to review some of the wild games you may have missed you can view them at http://chess.my2dollars.ca/archive.html and select the season from drop-down menu, then select game from Schedule.

Hello David

not so long ago I did a tournament with SF Komodo and Houdini.
Settings were a bit different.
games were also 225. timer a bit longer.
And I had setup ponder on, 15 cpus for the engines.
Unfortunately I had not set up Houdini with contempt 0.

Thank you all for your comments. The tournament is finally underway with live pv's for all engines.

Check it out http://chess.my2dollars.ca

If you have missed any games and would like to review them move by move including what each engine's pv was for each ply you can do so at http://chess.my2dollars.ca/archive or simply click the Archives button on the live page.

NOTE: Engine pv was recently implemented so it's only available starting from game 63 of the Super X3 Finals.
