Congratulations to Mike (Supernova) for winning this division. :)
The latest version of Supernova at the time will play in a higher division of the next series.

It is really great to see the interest that the lower divisions generate, especially in the broadcasts.
The engines in this division aren't too far below GM strength, so they still play some good chess. :P
