HIARCS lost to The Baron ?! Not a good sign for HIARCS 15.

Booot - interesting.

Is that not premature? Playoff second game is still in progress. Booot won the first.
Playoffs, I had no idea there were playoffs. I thought Booot had won ahead of all others... :) :)

Can someone confirm that "Boot" is still written in Pascal / Delphi?

Booot 6.3.1 is open source, and it is indeed written in Pascal/Delphi.

Don't take my words seriously. The match is still supposed to be running... Although it seems stucked at Round 12.. :) :)

I am rooting for Booot..
