Congratulations to Louis (Axolotl author) for taking top spot. :)

Several engines might promote from this division depending on how much stronger the new versions are.

Thanks to all those who either followed the broadcast or took an interest.

Congrats Louis, convincing lead for the win of the tournament! Thanks Graham for hosting this amazing tournament.

I hope future versions of FabChess can promote. To me it seems like most of the losses are endgame related, however I couldn't figure out exactly what is going wrong.
