Re: World Computer Chess Championship ?

Re: World Computer Chess Championship ?

......There is a procedure to determine who the world champion is and there is. It should not be open the cheaters and copiers and it isn't...... How would you know that unless every engine was put under the same scrutiny as the chosen few? Every engine? The way this works is that there has to be a...

I have always felt this way too, even to the point where I consid...
