TCEC Season 8 - Preliminary Info

If you follow chess at all, you've probably heard about the tournament that just started a few days ago featuring the planet's strongest players. No, I'm not talking about the 2015 Sinquefield Cup. Those players, with the likes of GMs Carlsen and Anand, are strong -- at least for humans -- but the world's strongest players are battling it out in TCEC season 8, the Thoresen Chess Engines Competition.

For the original announcement, see Information and Participants List; for more details, see Complete Information, both pages courtesy Chessdom.com, the event's 'Partner'. Earlier this year I covered the previous season in TCEC Season 7. For season 8, I'll be looking for further clues about What Makes the Engines Tick.
