Thanks, as always, for your efforts, Graham! I'm curious how CT800 will fare relative to it's father NG-Play.

Btw., there is a version v1.31 of CT800, but that's not meant for CCRL because it has only a minor cosmetic bugfix without impact on playing strength. Just saying, not that you waste time with testing that version. :-)

No problem. Can our 1.30 results bl combined with 1.31?

I expect CT800 to finish in the top three. :)

Yes. The only difference is that the search eval is stable in the very rare endgame KQ:KP where that gives draw. No impact on playing strength, it just bothered me when I saw that. :-)

Unless Dorpsgek catches up, he's a tough nut for the CT800 unless the time controls are super short like 1 second per game with no increments. However, CT800 v1.32 (not yet released) wins about 35 Elo in self-play over v1.31/1.30 and should also finally get the old v1.11 from the CCRL - which I think is overrated somehow. :-)

Btw., any losses on time, and even more crashes, are very serious bugs for me. If you should see that, I would appreciate if you could drop me a note. Thanks again. :-)
