Was there some sort of issue with Axolotl?
Yes - I get a JNI error message after installing the latest java update.
I'll take a look at the javapath configuration this weekend to see if I can sort it out.

Fab got clutch 4/6 points in the last 6 rounds to fourth last place. All in all still pretty disappointing compared to my estimate. Let's see where version 1.9 is heading on the elo chart though :D Thanks Graham for hosting the tournament!
