Good job that you offer broadcasts recently.
Well it's no real hassle on my part providing these live broadcasts. I just wish that more enthusiasts had the technical know-how to use TLCV and join those already there.
Maybe you could write up a short howto to encourage other testers.

I enjoy kibitzing at Oliviers tourney, for example. There's always a nice chat to be had.
the first problem for me is that the program is windows only...

The sad thing is that I needed much help from Oliver, Andres and my oldest son, so I'm the last person qualified to do this. It would be great if somebody could though.

Graham,

how does it come that Kurt finally managed to deal with Carballo? I believe Carballo always came out ahead in your tournaments? Did you use a new book or was there an opponent that got on particularly well with Carballo?

Just one of those things that can happen from time to time Oliver. A generic book (Wael Deeb's Charlotte 1.0.cgb book) was used for all engines with an 8 move restriction.
Well done on Kurt's win. Division 7 will be coming up in a couple of weeks. That will be a lot tougher for Kurt. :P
