Martin,if you are planning to continue these testings then i think it's interesting to have this as a base.
now 30 games..later you can dubble it or put a new engine in this tournament..and like this you will make a great list :D
Just a idea!

JP.

Love to see Critter win just 2 games that would be enough to win. :)

There seems to be as bug on the webpage at the moment.
The applet to the left where you can step through the current game does not correspond to the game being played.

* click on "end"
and you'll get an irrelevant position, with the text
Position after 37. ... Ra5-c5

Maybe this bug is local on my machine: Windows XP, Firefox 3.6.8

The problem seems to occur only at the first loading of the page, manually refreshing the page (F5) solves the problem.
Most likely a caching issue.

This is correct as far as my observations go, too.
