ZaTour - Season 2

Post by amanjpro » Mon Jun 28, 2021 11:45 pm

ZaTour Season 2 started. Currently the promotion league is running, the engines that compete for qualification are:

- Rustic Alpha 3
- KingSlayer
- Minimal Chess
- FairyMax
- With Zahak 1.0.1 competing, but cannot qualify (because Latest Zahak already plays in the super league)

You can follow the games live here: https://zatour.amanj.me/

And if you want your engine to be registered for next season, please submit it here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1podbnb ... -PnIdPObTU

Previous games/seasons are all in the ZaTour Webpage

Unfortunately due to a mistake on my part, Minimal Chess played the first few games with an outdated binary, and to compensate for that, we decided to compensate it by, allowing it to qualify to the Super League, alongside the winner of the league, in the event if it ended the league with 2 or less points behind the winner. I believe this is a fair compensation, as the other engines will keep their scores, while Minimal Chess won't get penalized for a mistake that was done by me. The only price to pay, is we might end up with an extra engine in the Super League.

ZaTour - Season 2 - Promotion League (Crosstable)

Post by amanjpro » Fri Jul 02, 2021 3:18 pm

Each engine so far has played 36 games in the promotion league. And, MinimalChess leads the bunch, with a close competition from Rustic Alpha 3 and KingSlayer.

As expected, Zahak 1.0.1 and FairyMax are far behind the top engines:

When do you plan to start it? I'll try to provide you again with a most recent build. It won't have any massive improvements but I'm still fiddling with the TT implementation and that might be worth a few extra ELO.

As soon as the promotion league ends. I believe it will take another week, given that we just passed the first half
