As a matter of fact I did ask him and not you to reactivate it again, and the reason for him to let it away maybe will be the impression that people like you are uninterested in it anyhow.

For a commercial engine to offer it or not the argument might be mainly a commercial one, obviously not for you to buy it, for me it yet would be one more and that's just what I wanted to let Robert know, you see

I also vote for the return of the learning file. :) It's hard to see how it could adversely impact Houdini's Elo.

+1

Add 1.a3, 1.h3, 1.h4, 1.g4 and 1.f3 into that lot as well.
+10 :)

TCEC Season 10 is starting in about a month. Behind the scenes active preparation is going on for holding the 2
017 season of the world’s premium computer chess event.
After a constructive discussion and feedback from the TCEC fans, the new season will have the following parameters:
* A 20 or more cores server right from the start (Dual Xeon E5 series)
* Participants will be limited to 24 engines with a minimum ELO requirement
* Time control will be slightly faster in each stage, producing more games per day
* New engines that have never participated in TCEC will be invited
The season’s administrator will once again be Martin Thoresen. However, TCEC will be looking for another addition to the team. The new administrator will receive one month training and will be part of the season in later stages and from Season 11 on. If you think you are suitable for the job or know someone who is, please contact us here.
More updates on the championship will be published next week on Chessdom and also on the Facebook page.

I have turned down the invitation to become involved, but there are some other Talkchess members that might consider it.

This is good news. And I'm glad Martin took it back. It really was going nowhere with Anton.
Theory and practice sometimes clash. And when that happens, theory loses. Every single time.
