CSVN Autumn Tournament

Post by pijl » Mon Sep 23, 2013 4:44 am

On November 30th and December 1st the CSVN will organize another programmer's tournament. This will be the 45th time that a tournament for programmers is organized and the participation rules will be the same as for the tournament earlier this year. This means that the similarity test results should be provided by the author as part of the registration.

Additionally the 1st Open Engine tournament is being held on december 1st. The intention of this tournament is to give the opportunity to users, testers and programmers of programs that cannot participate in the programmer's tournament an opportunity to meet each other. Of course, the organization would like to have a variety of (modified) programs participating here. Please mention as part of your registration with which program you want to participate, on which program it is based (if applicable) and what you have done to improve its performance (settings, book, program adaptations etc.).

For both tournaments you can register with jan.krabbenbos (at) gmail.com.

On November 30th the 27th users tournament is organized. The maximum playing strength for this tournament is 1700 Elo points. An Elo list with computers<1700 can be found here

Your registration for the users tournament can be sent to luuk.hofman (at) gmail.com

You can find this and more details (soon) at the CSVN website

On behalf of the tournament organization,
Richard Pijl

Would it be possible for one person to participate both in the programmer's tournament (with one engine) and in the open-engine tournament (with another)?

Curious is this an embedded only tournament? I had a tickle seeing engines in the list running on m68k and ARM. Bring on the raspberry pj's :)

The users tournament is a tournament for commercial dedicated Chess machines.

Hmmm might be interesting to participate. In either tournament.

Well depends a little on how things are going with the then new-born (a child I mean, not any new born software).

I don't see why that would not be allowed, but it might not be very practical because the rounds overlap.

You might even participate in both of these tournaments with the same engine (if it is self-written).

Good luck getting the new-born to play legal chess in time for the tournament ;-)
