It would be more interesting to see all these engines compete with only a two plies opening book, in order to appreciate which engines have a better understanding of the opening principles, instead of starting from the middle game stage of the game, as a matter of fact all the CCRL matches should be with no more than 2 plies Opening book and programmers would be forced to implement better understanding of the opening principle to their engines.

Thanks Clemens. Great to hear from you and I hope that life is treating you well.
I've not used Livius, but I'm sure that somebody who has (or is) might be able to answer.

File / PGN is probably the only way to get the move list in Livius. No back and forth buttons as in TLCV.
