Hi all,

Hopefully it will be a fun time ahead. TCEC is back!

To check it out, you can go to:
All "old TCEC" games can be found in the archive:
All info and explanations can be found in the info page:

Season 1 will start soon. I will come back later with a more detailed date. An approximate time frame is within 1-2 weeks.
I will also need to decide on a decision regarding the opening book, any help on this matter will be most appreciated.
Preliminary list of participants can be found in the engine ratings page:

There is now a chatbox too, that accepts logins from Facebook or Twitter, or as a guest.
If the latter proves to be problematic I will disable it so behave!

Spread the word to as many as you can by clicking the Google +1, Facebook Like, or Twitter button in the header.

The website should work in any browser, however for IE, version 7 or lower are not recommended.
For all browsers, Javascript must be enabled to view the games.
Please let me know if you have any trouble with the website!
Contact details are also in the info page.

ChessBomb has agreed to continue the broadcasts too, so of course you can go there too when the first season starts.

Now there is a big board function so you can watch the games while you make coffee or eat.
Just click the "Big Board" link right below the chess board in the live page. It will re-size it self depending on how big you make the window.
