I’d like to see Fire, Andscacs, and Fizbo facing off in the same way that the top 3 have done previously in YLCET.

These engines are free, publicly available and represent the lower half of the TCEC Premier Division.

I’ve excluded Chiron development versions and Ginkgo because they are both private engines.

I’m already pretty sure I know what the overall result would be, however that assumption is based on results from rating lists that use short time controls and relatively low powered hardware. I’d like to see how the results change with a massive increase in hardware power and thinking time.

Thank you for everyone taking the time to make suggestions. It is hard to accommodate them all but we've taken them into consideration for future tournaments

After a discussion on our page's chat we've decided the next tournament. Read about it here:
