Skipper has changed its name into SchaakMachine. Might that give a problem when using Skipper account to join the tournament.
[By the way I don't like name SchaakMachine because of the spelling error. But Skipper is no good name too for chess has nothing to do with ships or boats]

Already played a game against tomitankchess so probably no problem.

Can anyone just follow these instructions to join in? It might be cool to try out the newest version of my engine

Sorry - should have been clearer. Do I need an account, or do I just login as guest

'SilentShark' was actually Francesca; I picked a wrong name for the account. Myrddin disconnected after 6 rounds, and had to be forfeited.

Daniel should be pleased with that, I am ! :) That was one very tough tournament.

AndScacs finds an opening innovation that whips up an attack on the king side. The line starts with 8.Re1? This unusual move is from the Cerebellum book. The normal move is 8.b4. Blacks response 8...Be6! is not found in the databases that I have. Maybe someone can find it somewhere. After this, Schooner is outplayed.
