they dont seem to want a forum, as it takes away from facebook hits.
so this is my last post.
crash, crash, is the new motto.
its happening at almost one a round.
first gingko did it to end stage 1a (fire earlier), now pedone (twice) and junior.
crafty also had to replace alfil, who could not turn the book off.
the rules say, "All openings books shipped with the engines are removed and/or disabled",
but tcec did not do this.
there was no allowance to the author to repair it.
with pedone the first fix has failed, it still stalled on move 9.
houdini and stockfish are technically in the lead, though both have won by dropouts.
