    CountryChess
    An alternative chess engine tournament
    Welcome to CountryChess!

    In the first stage, chess engines of the same country will play a double round-robin tournament. The winner of each country competition meets other country winners in qualifying matches or in the Champions League, according to its place on the country ranking list. Top ranked countries will be represented by 2, 3 or even 4 engines in the Champions League.

    About me:
    My name is Geert. I live in Belgium and I am visually impaired. My chess elorating is about 1850 elo. I prefer to update an easy blog, friendly for a blind user. The purpose is to organize tournaments and to share the games and results. I don't like wasting time on unaccessible webdesign programs. So don't expect a perfect lay-out, but let's hope it is good enough though!

    Please, check the Live game page
    for live broadcasting of the CountryChess games.

    Enjoy!

    2 engines were participating: Movei 08.438 and Genesis 2.0.1 b01. No discussion about which program should win this match. It was rother meant as test for the good old Movei. And Movei plays without his own book. I tried to solve this, but without any result.
    I can't find Genesis on the internet anymore. Please send me a download link if you have found one, otherwise this engine will be excluded from CC.

    2 participants:
    Dirty 11AUG2011 and Natwarlal 0.14.

    Dirty seems to work fine under fritz, but it crashes when I try to configure the WB2uci. Now Dirty plays without endgame bitbases.


    It was hard to find a not-broken link for Natwarlal. Finally, I found one, see below (only exe file).
    Games and result of this engine match is coming very soon.

    It was not easy to select the 12 strongest German freeware engines. Toga or no Toga, and why is Loop MP excluded from almost every engine tournament? As always, I keep an eye on other tournament results and ranking lists, so I think that my selection is defendable.
    Anaconda, Gromit, Jonny, Protector and Sos are playing with the perfect2010.ctg book. For Sos, I tried to use "Sos traps", a special book created by salvo Spitaleri and converted with the abk to pgn file, made by Lance Perkins. It doesn't work fine though.

    Sometimes, chess engines just act like real people. After the first leg of the tournament, BugChess had 10 out of 11, 2 points more than Fruit. In the second leg, BugChess couldn't hold its leading position. Was he nervous, unexperienced in winning a tournament? Fruit won with 1.5 points in front of BugChess.
    Fruit 2.3.1 will play a play-off match (12 games) against Fruit 2.3.3f later. The winning version will be used.
    Dragon and the disappointing Crazy Bishop are relegated to play in the second French division.

    Finally, the first tournament with a reasonable number of participants: 11.
    7 games of Rodin 4.0 were replayed afterward. The friendly author Fermin Serrano helped me to find a solution for the timetroubles of his engine. And Rodin did a very good job with a second place, far behind Alfil but it seems that this engine has made much progress.
    Caligula refused to use its own book under Fritzgui.

    Maybe I was the only one who didn't know that a newer version of Fruit is available on the web. Newer, what's in a name; this version is from 2007. Don't know if this beta is free of bugs and stronger than the official version 2.3.1. If Fruit wins the French countrycompetition, maybe I'll use F2.3.3f.

    Again a little tournament with only 3 players. I probably underestimated the strenght of some other engines with an elo >2000; I will add them to the next Canadian tournament.
    However, the winner is not a big surprise, even if Thinker didn't play at its full strength: only 1cpu. I don't know how many cores Thinker supports; at least 2, hopefully 4 or even 6.

    At the beginning, Little Thought was crashing in almost every game. But the author Nathan Thom helped me to adjust some parameters: Multiple threads =1, TraceLevel =2. With these settings, Little Thought played just great and obtained a 4-2 win against Trace. Little Thought will participate in the Champions League test tournament.
