Hi Graham,

in this group of engines Wasp should be win with a hurricane, a tornado, the big ban of games.
And you are live on the PC, my congratulation!

:-)

Good luck for the other participate programs for that tourney of the century!

Hm, I think a bit overkill my message ... not sure!
Time to celebrate what we have!

The year 2021 started with Wasp 4.5, can't be better (my view).

:-)

Best chief I ever had ... speaking from John!
Go Wasp go ... I am so crazy.

Best
Frank

"Wasp In The Wind" sounds like "Dust In The Wind" - the famous Kansas song:

Did you mean this giving the name to the Tournament?
Incredibly fast systems miscount incredibly fast.

Not really, but I've always loved that song. :)
I was just trying to think of a name relevant to one or more of the contestants.

Hi Graham,

oh yes!

:-)

Wasp 4.5 have after 3 of 50 rounds problems in my tourney vs. Marvin and Nirvana.
But in such short tournaments all is a bit random.
At the moment I have the results from three rounds only.

Here the results (without Minic with Gullchess 3.0 Sy) from the group of engines you are using:
