Oh, what a close tourney (except for Topple)!
Incredibly fast systems miscount incredibly fast.

Hi Angle,

oh yes, very closed.
From Wasp view ... Fizbo 2, Fritz 17, Shredder 13, Schooner 2.2 are in the near and the advantage to Arasan 22.2, Winter 0.9, Andscacs 0.95, GullChess 3.0 Sy is very small. I think Andscacs 0.95 is a very bit stronger as Wasp 4.5. After not enough games not to see in my still running tournament.

A lot of games are necessary or the small advantages are not to see.

And many others are in the near from the group: Koivisto, Seer, Halogen, Orion, Combusken, Marvin and Chiron.

Very hard and nice computer chess for this group of engines, because all these engines are playing quite different chess.

Best
Frank

I like the short tourneys from Graham.

In this case Arasan won ...
Congratulation to Jon Dart!
I like computer chess!
