It's an 8 cores CPU tournament, so real question is why there is no Lc0 on 8 cores CPU. The reason I guess is that Graham didn't manage to make openblas version run on 8 cores.

No graphics card, as this computer was originally built with only chess in mind.

Correct. If I ran Lc0 with more than 4 cores, it would play a few moves and then lock up the computer, necessitating a reboot.

Looked at the Round 1 results : Lc0 and DeusX have disappeared.

So I was right, it was a joke to include them... (?)

Maybe I am reading this wrong, but I think Graham deserves more respect than you seem to be showing him.

If those two were removed he will probably mention it and explain why after the first round has completed. Truth of the matter is that getting Leela to run is more difficult than most other engines. Furthermore, most testers don't have GPU systems lying around and most rating lists are standardized for some specific CPU configuration so you can group together results from multiple testers.

If you want Leela to get tested by independent testers, which as a fan you should, then you should show some patience. Not doing so will only make people reluctant to test it.
