Good luck, Zach.

I didn't know that WCCC has already started!

Not the main ICGA tournament site apparently. There are some good threads in the HIARCS general forum, with an entertaining daily journal by Hans van der Zijden, the new editor of the Dutch Computer Chess magazine. One of the threads gave this up-to-date crosstable and round robin schedule: http://ticc.uvt.nl/icga/cg2010results/WCCC.html

After two rounds, Rybka and Rondo are undefeated, Shredder gave up a draw to Pandix, and Thinker beat Junior in the first round. Rybka and Rondo are scheduled to meet in the fifth round on Tuesday.

Also, there is a sticky post in the Rybka forums with its progress and games. (Nice forum, you can replay PGN games in the posts!)

For those who haven't been keeping track, there were some notable withdrawals. A Cuban entry was ejected for being a robbolito clone, and HIARCS and Sjeng withdrew due to the perennial amateur/professional order-of-magnitude entry fee difference.

You plan to commercialize Rondo after this, right Zach?

Too bad the ICGA isn't bothering to provide a little more info on the WCCC. :(
