Engines finishing in the bottom 2 positions will be relegated to the Super League for Season 6.
After an impressive run in the Super League (getting a 91% score), Leela had serious chances of beating Stockfish 9 to be crowned champion, but Stockfish was just updated to version 10 a couple of days ago, so now it will be really hard to beat. We'll see what happens.
Can Ethereal beat Houdini and/or Fire and get a spot in the Superfinal now that it supports ponder? Will Leela live to the hype and finish top 3? Will be interesting.
I'll be broadcasting the whole tournament as usual at my twitch channel https://www.twitch.tv/ccls and making regular updates here in the forums.
