Het blijkt dat de CSVN tijdens de afgelopen twee toenrooien bedrogen is door "Richard Hall" met zijn programma's Almond en Scaramanga. Tussen kerst en nieuwjaar kregen via een van onze deelnemers de melding dat de Hall niet helemaal was wie hij ons verteld had te zijn. Met een internationale groep van mensen zijn we toen bezig gegaan om uit te zoeken welk programma nu eigenlijk gebruikt is. Uiteindelijk blijken het twee verschillende versies van het programma Now van Mark Lefler te zijn.

 

A little bit later then at the end of the last round and after the prize giving ceremony, the results are posted here. The (small) organisation had to clear the playing hall, packing all their cables and other stuff and drive back home. There the diner waited. So now at nearly 23:00 the final results on the website.

 

Rybka is for the fifth consecutive time Open Dutch Computer Chess Champion 2010. Shared second where the programs Spike, Deep Sjeng and Hiarcs. Rookie won the Programmers Prize.

 

The last round will start at 16:15. The games up to round 8 are downlaodable from: default Dutch Open Computer Championship 2010

With 7.5 out of 8 games, its clear that Rybka will claim its fifth Open Dutch title in a row.

First tp finish the game is Rybka.

Round 8 has started. In the mean time the organisation is calculating the results for the programmers prize. After the calculations we see Rookie on top of the programmers prize list.

 

There was a very quick win by Hiarcs over Nightmare. Hiarcs was still in the book and in the post-mortem the calculation said mate in 13. Question: has anybody seen this game before?

The games up to round 7 are now in the default Dutch Open Computer Championship 2010  file.

In the mean time Deep Shredder wins over RedQueen, tries Joker to overrun Hansdamf, Dolphin goes for its first half and The King tries to draw against Rybka. But no conclusions yet. Dolphin wins! Its first game in the tournament. Also Joker wins.

At the moment only the two top boards are still busy. Rybka has a pawn up in a rook ending. Deep Sjeng - Spike looks a draw. 

Rybka wins its game as the extra pawn goes fast to the last row. So Johan resigns. And Deep Sjeng finally makes the draw.
