The link below will be updated every 10 games completed until 110 are completed and then completion. It would be best to only check it every 4 hours for so. But wait at least until 4 hours have passed before checking it the first time.

Never tested this many games before at this time control, should be interesting... hopefully.

Now going bed and will be remote tomorrow - with no ability to fix anything if it goes wrong. So if you do not see the results at the expected time, something has gone wrong and I would not waste any further time checking.

I killed the match here- obviously this version was falling short of expectations. 6 to 1 when you have 91.5% draws is pretty telling.

Will start up a second match with a slightly different version with 30 minute 30 second increment games that will run about 13 hours.

Same links will be applicable - but the updates will be every 45 minutes instead of 90 minutes. First update will be in about 2 hours or around 3:30 AM EST.
