Battle of the Goths tournament conditions
Hardware: Core 2 Duo (E6600) 2.4GHz, 2GB RAM, 2 x 250MB hard disk.Software used: PSWBTM, WinBoard_F, LGTBL, Abyss Web Server. Conditions: 128MB hash (max), no tablebases. Upcoming tournament (TOT1):
Round robin with 2 games per pairing.
nominal time control 36'+0 (for those playing without time odds).
Games start from several opening positions: Capablanc, Gothic, Bird, Carrera, Embassy, or other CRC or fantasy setups.
These initial positions are currently set up in the engines by feeding them moves from the gothic position (a kludge to accomodate TSCP-G). The ChessLive! viewer does not show that, but they do appear in the PGN file. So ignore all initial moves there that don't have depth/score annotations: they were not made by the engines.
Participants (all WinBoard 10x8 enines):
Note that this website is experimental, and still under construction. The currently running tournament is for testing purposes only.
