So only few days left to implement some extra bugs or bad ideas. Crashes to crashes.
By the way 5 minutes too much to win on time. Even did not make it to win a single 1 minute game on time against Stockfish13.
So looks like 55 seconds is the limit or Skippers record.

You have to add a function to your program to have it kibitz some lyrics. I remember from last time:

White bird
In a golden cage
On a winter's day
In the rain
White bird
In a golden cage
Alone

Yes focussing only on Elo gives no interesting lyrics.

"Sun is shinin' in the sky
There ain't a cloud in sight
It's stopped rainin' everybody's in the play
And don't you know
It's a beautiful new day, hey hey ..""

This time Nightmare was lucky and ended at the first place. The win against Schooner in the 3th round probably was the decisive one. I didn't change the program for several months, all you need is a good book, fast hardware and a lot of luck.

Belfish (a Stockfish derivative) and LczTinker (LC0-v0.28-rc1 on a RTX2080Ti) ended on a shared 2nd place. Nemorino came in 3th.

During the last round Goldbar messed up by trying to observe Nightmare's game while he was still playing himself, this broke something so Lisebeth had to forfeit him. Poor Bart.
