Can't recall having this issue with previous versions though.
I just checked version 1.12 which has the same 'issue'. I will update this for the next version but don't know when it will be released.
Might just be on this particular machine, as I ran a gauntlet without any problems whatsover on my i7.

Congratulations to Dennis (Schooner author) on taking top spot and promotion back into the dreaded Division1! :)

At this stage, RubiChess is also likely to promote.

Thanks to all who took an interest in the tournament. The live broadcast was well supported.
