Hello All, after a long way back with snow and traffic jam and a dense highway in the Netherlands we all came home around 10 o'clock
Kaufbeuren was cozy again as always
The only downside was the service, but I think many agree with me. An improvement point for next year I think.
The tournament was exciting, I found myself with a surprising winner the R30 2.5, but extremely deserved! Also congratulations to Michael
As many know I played with the V11 100Mhz in the Dreuke Board of SteveUK, a nice 2nd place, unfortunately lost of the winner in a 100% draw position, under time pressure the V11 left his runner on the diagonal of a2-g8 , the R30 2.5 found the move at the very last moment Txc5! and now the black tower could no longer prevent a lady, unfortunately, I think if the V11 draw had been held the tournament winner would be.
with 5 wins 2 draws and a defeat an extremely successful tournament for this old program in this strong A group
The V11 was shared 2nd with the Millennium King which was only 20%
The operator Steffen had set him up for Aktief and Aegon Boek
what the King did not bring much in many openings, 1 or 2 pawns become fainter and then follow the facts. However, the program is good and with a good chess I even managed to draw or win, I personally think that with the setting normal and master book it would have been better because I think the King program was the best program in terms of playing chess, so even at only 20% of the 300Mhz cpu power, it played strong chess and it was a fair fight against the oldies
setbacks were of course also there, such as the Revelation II Vancouver EMU which by the new CPU was 20% schneller, unfortunately parties in which the vancouver was clearly better even lost, it sat Paul Wiselius not along
However, it was nice to see that Ruud Martin had a special emulation, the Novag Adversery Robot! great in the display the robot arm and even the emotions with sound showed the EMU
There were also O Wiener with the director von Millennium Thomas Karkosch, who also used the new King module.
Unfortunately there was a personal setback for Rasmus Althoff, not with the CT800 but for himself, on Saturday after a few round he got a migrant attack and had to go to bed.
In the B group it was also exciting until the last round, the centurion even suffered a loss against the Milano, but could still keep on remsie, becoming a tournament winner with second place the Excalibur Grandmaster on 32Mhz, third was Surprise the Novag Constellation Expert!
With a successful tournament, thanks to the organization !!
Mvg, Hans
