Congratulations to Laurens (FrankWalter author) for taking out top spot.

At this stage, the top three engines will promote.

Thanks to all who took an interest in the tournament. The live broadcast was well supported and there was some great chat. :)

Thanks!

It was nice to visit the live broadcast and see the engines in action. It was really tough competition and I hope I can improve FrankWalter enough to maybe even compete for a nice result in D7! (because if I don't improve it, FW will be moving back to D8;-)

Thank you for organizing the tournament,
