TCEC S16 Leagues; CCC9/CCC10

Let's see. Where were we in last week's coverage of the world class engine tournaments? To summarize that post, TCEC S16 Qualification; CCC9 Bonuses:-

TCEC: The first stage of S16, the Qualification League, is well underway. • CCC: The 'Gauntlet Bonus III' is just getting started. • Both events might be finished in time for next week's post.

That last sentence was half right. The TCEC event finished, but the CCC event is still running.

TCEC: The chart shows the top half of the Qualification League. According to the current TCEC rules, the top six engines qualify for the next stage, now called 'League 2'. It should start soon.

CCC: Some of the details for CCC10 are available from planning documents. Called 'Neverending Story' (how true!), it will have the following rounds: Qualification (13 engines), Quarterfinal (12), Semifinal (6), and Final (2).

[For further information from the various stakeholders in the engine-to-engine events, see the tab 'TCEC/CCC Links' at the top of this page. • NB: Leela = LC0 = LCzero]
