Spoken like a true WildCat 7 fanatic! :P

I think it's Spike's turn to win after being upset by Scorpio last time. :wink:

Hi Graham, It's good to see SlowChess getting another shot at the championship. Spikes even more powerful this time around while Slows development seems to have come to a halt. I think Spike will take it. I'll be watching this one!
Thanks,
Rick Andrews

Hi Rick,

I hope that the author of SlowChess is able to further improve his engine at some stage also.
Although it would be a shock if Spike didn't take this one out, I'll be enjoying the battle at the other end to avoid the three relegation spots. :P

Regards, Graham.
