Re: World Computer Chess Championship

One reason to allow unlimited hardware is to enable programs to participate that require unusual hardware or can benefit from it. Example: back pre-Crafty, Bob's program Cray Blitz competed, running on a Cray supercomputer. It didn't run on anything else. More recently, Johnny competed running on a...
