We start approximately at 20:00 with this round. The top programs Rybka and Hiarcs meet each other this round. The complete pairing will be here as soon as possible. At this moment the supporters for The Baron. Including the operator for Dolphin, Tessa. So Bart has only his own program to operate tonight.
Although not involved much in Computer Chess at the moment, Jeroen Noomen is already the whole event walking around. See one of the photos that will show up on this page, later tonight. If you look at the hardware in the participants list, you will see that there are three programs using clusters with more than 200 cores! Jonny even uses 800 of 2000 available at the University of Bayreuth.
I should not forget to mention that the games of round 2 are already on the download section of this website.
Approximately one hour played and Scaramanga - Spike is the first game to finish. Within 5 moves the position of Scaramanga was gone from positive to very bad. It seems that at once everybody want to go to their hotel or home, as results are coming in quickly now.
Looking forward to tomorrow: the Users Event will also take place parallel to the ODCCC. 12 participants bring their oldies over here and play a tournament. Also people from abroad. More will follow on this website tomorrow.
