TCEC Season 11: 1st Division

Post by JamesTCEC » Tue Jan 23, 2018 9:26 am

1st Division of Season 11 started yesterday (22nd Jan): It is a 4 x Double Round Robin (DRR) and Andscacs - Nirvana is the first game. The whole first DRR will be bookless, so all engines will play from the initial position vs each of the other engines with white and black. Time control is 90' + 10". Top 2 will be promoted to Premier Division and bottom 2 will be relegated to 2nd Division.

The full list of the 8 partipants (and its version) is:
1. Andscacs 0.93
2. Booot 6.2
3. Gull 3
4. Fizbo 2
5. Hannibal 121017
6. Nirvana 2.4
7. Jonny 8.1
8. Laser 1.5
