Congratulations to Shredder ! Winning a tournament with Komodo in it is very difficult indeed.

Opinions expressed here are my own, and not necessarily those of the CCRL Group.

My congratulations to Stefan Meyer-Kahlen with Shredder as well, and to Frank Schneider with Ginkgo. Congratulations to Johannes Zwanzger for winning the WCCC 2015 with Jonny, and the Komodo team for the Blitz title, despite being disappointed for the WCSC and WCCC. You will do better next time. Thanks for participating.

Further, and that is a real surprise, congratulations to Fabien Letouzey for winning the 10x10 draughts tournament with Scan, in a strong field of 12 participants, only testing with self-play and auto tuning! Wow! Then of course congrats to HGM for winning MiniShogi with Shokidoki, and Johan de Koning for Pan winning Gold in Amazons and 8QP for Gold in the Clobber tournament.

Regards from Holland,
Gerd

I think this is a really amazing achievement by Fabien. I understood his program did not even have tablebases, where most others rely on tablebases of upto 8 men. It should cause a revolution in Draughts programming even bigger than what Fruit caused in computer Chess. I would describe it as sensational!

Where can I see the results?


I can see many non chess tournament but 10*10 draughts is not one of them.

It is really a shame that the ICGA is so sloppy updating their website. (Mini-Shogi results from Friday aren't even shown there yet, and the WCSC page is also updated only up to the 6th round...)

Fortunately one of the participants posted the results on his website:

Congratulation to Shredder team.

Can someone provide a link for the games?
There will surely be some interesting positions.
