Re: Tarrasch GUI 3.10c is Available

Nice GUI. If you could add engine vs engine support and a tournament manager I think that a lot of people is going to use it.

Re: Invictus r228 64-bit Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

Thanks Graham. This gives me a good baseline for future versions.

I was trying to watch your tournaments but I was unable to connect. Not sure why. It says "Connection failed. No response from server.". I tried 16001 to 9.

Just curious if anyone happens to know..
Top engine was Shredder when I started in this hobby in 2003/2004. Then Rybka came in 2005 and blew everyone out of the water. It stayed in the top I think for 5/6 years before the trio takes over.

I'm using the following set of positions (from Hannibal games and from some positions posted here in CCC): "r3k2r/pbpnqp2/1p1ppn1p/6p1/2PP4/2PBPNB1/P4PPP/R2Q1RK1 w kq ...
