Matthias Gemuh, author of ChessGUI hasn't found the crash bug yet - but after
testing the latest version with some 600 blitz and bullet games while pushing
the live pgn system to the limits (1 second auto ftp upload) there has not been
a single crash so I take my chances and start this main TCEC event now.
As I am a big fan of Hannibal it will now make its debute in TCEC - keep
in mind that this engine is not SMP capable and thus runs with 1 core only.
Also, I am glad I am able to include Winboard engines without problems with this TC. Thanks to Matthias and Mr. Hyatt for confirming.
As for ChessBomb, I hope they will relay this tournament so that we can chat using their excellent website. This is not confirmed yet, however.
