Congratulations to Fabian (FabChess author) for winning this division and gaining promotion for the next series. :)

Thanks to all who took an interest, and again, it was great to see some of the engine authors visiting the broadcast.

Gratz Fabi!

I ended up watching a lot of it and had a blast. A bit painful to see Weiss suffering from poor time management in cyclic, but it's been fixed so Weiss will be back stronger next time! :)

Thanks Graham!

Thanks for this tourney Graham! Fab overperformed pretty hard, but still almost managed to throw the lead away in the end :D
