Games will be available for download after every ten rounds from here:

If you install TLCV (Tom's Live Chess Viewer) on your computer, you can watch the games live move by move. You'll also be able to chat to others following the tournament in the chatroom there.

There is a Livius windows version too.
It has live pv boards as a nice addition.

A really interesting middlegame, followed up by good endgame technique from Topple.

Very nice game, indeed. I should save it, I guess :D.

Asymptote 0.6 seems to do multithreading much better than 0.5. No threading related changes in 0.6, I guess the bug fixes (most probably hashing) caused that.

Really looking forward to the rest of the tournament! :)

Graham: i PM'ed you a message couple of days ago. Is 4-core ponder enabled something you might want to try in the near future?

Ponder work better on dual xeon than on single cpu motherboard.

Hi Norbert,

sorry that I didn't reply. It had slipped my mind completely.
I would love to try that, but at present there is too much CCRL 4CPU testing that needs to be done.
I hope to get onto testing the new Komodo soon. That's how far we are.

Graham.
