Any chance we will see LCZero in this tourney? That would be fun...

Well, I won't run it. I have no GPU. Of course it would be welcome.

I could run it. I have a GTX 980, which is not all that bad. But I am sure there are people here with at least a GTX 1080.

I have a spare computer with an Intel i7-5960X and a GTX-1080ti that I don't use at the moment, I can try to set it up but I have no clue whether LC0 works in conjunction with polyglot and Winboard.
Of course I'll also need another account for it.

I've used it with xboard on Linux without any problems.

Well, I can try to set it up, tomorrow I don't have time but I can do some tests on Friday, hopefully time-controls are also working.
If it works without problems I will ask Harm Geert for an LC0 account.

Same here for WB. (Did not work the first time I tried with UCI2WB though some three or four weeks ago, thus I always used Polyglot since then despite improved uci support in newer LC0 versions)
Current foe list count : [91]

If you leave your engine online after the tourney is over, please check if your tourney variable has been reset.

Entering

This morning I saw that there already is a 'LCZeroTest' account on HGM's server, so I assume that somebody else is going to take care of it.
