I tried to participate but apparently it didn't work.
Do you have an account from HGM?

Congratulations to Arasan for the first place victory. A critical game in the 6th round shows Black brushing off White's mating threats to come out with a material advantage enough to extract a win for Black!

Well, for one you would need a registered account to participate. Guests can play, but not in an automated tourney, as the tournament manager wants to check their rating, which guests do not have.

Then, even when you are logged on as a registered user, you would have to type a command to join the tourney when it announces itself.

Only after that everything would be automatic (if there are no disconnects).
OK, thank you. I will retry next time.

No, I don't. I didn't know that an account was required. :oops:

What's BelFish? Some version of SF? As an unrated engine, it went 9-0 in the lower half of the tournament. Will be interesting to see it compete next month with a saner initial score.

Agree.
Sure It was a sf " thing" .We've asked 3-4 time "what is belfish" , no answer so far... better saying It is a sf dérivative or not, just To have his real starting rank...
Another thing : bravo To Henk To leave the tournament before the end .. :mrgreen:

Well, the tourney ran way over time, due to various persistent problems. If we count 15 min per round it would nominally finish 23:15, but even withou problems and starting at 21:00 sharp we hardly ever make that. Usually it finishes closer to 23:30. But this time it was 23:45.

Yes I thought last round had been played. By the way I don't want to play after 23:30. After 23:15 I already get nervous. Starting half an hour earlier would be nice.

Or another solution. Make it possible to leave after 23:00. So one can choose to play less games then nine.
Or play with 3 seconds | 2 seconds increment
