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.

The last round on Saturday will start as soon as possible. Should have started at 16:15. But the last game of round 5 has just finished.

 

We start this round with the knowledge that Rybka has 5 out of 5. The followers are Spark and Deep Shredder with 1.5 points behind. The big question for the next four rounds is: will any program be strong enough to stop Rybka? We will see.

 

The fifth round is due to start. Pairings will be up in a moment. Participants know it already, as they sit behind their machines.The games of round 4 are already available in the default Dutch Open Computer Championship 2010 .

 

In the short member meeting Hans Secelle was choosen into the board of the CSVN. Furthermore Hans van der Zijden is made "Lid van Verdienste" because of his enormous support of computer chess within the CSVN in different ways.

 

The games are going, at half past three only two games are finished. Both draws for Spike - Hiarcs and Kallisto - HansDamf. In the mean time Richard Pijl is walking nervously around as The Baron makes him so. Scaramanga - Jonny results in a draw where Jonny has a queen and Scaramanga a pawn and a bishop. Very interesting study. The Baron loses after that the draw was expected.
