TD decisions

  1. [16:25 UTC, 16 February 2023] ‎Tournament Director's decision regarding Booot: It came to the attention of the author of Igel that Booot was finally ready, after many setbacks its author had experienced due to the war in his country. Igel author in a gentleman gesture then offered Booot to take its place in League 2, and this offer was accepted by TD-decision.
  2. [22:31 UTC, 20 February 2023‎] Tournament Director's decision regarding Igel: The many Booot crashes distort League 2 results. To alleviate this problem, Igel will be placed back after this League's play and play a 2 rounds gauntlet with reverse games against the other 11 League 2 engines. After removing Booot's results this will give the final table and promotions for League 2.


All participants are required and kindly asked to fill in the questionnaire below, by email (if they did not do so already, and also in case something essential was changed in their engine):

  1. Who is the main author of your engine’s code?
  2. Please name any other engines and authors whose code (if applicable: the various parts of) your engine, uses?
  3. What is the license(s) under which (if applicable: the various parts of) your engine’s code is/are placed?
  4. Please name the parts and the authors of the code you use for training in case you use a neural network?
  5. In case your engine uses Training Data (NNUE or NN parts): what is the origin of this data? Did you obtain permission for use from the original authors if applicable?
  6. In case of NNUE: does you engine comply with the unofficial TCEC NNUE Guideline, to the best of your knowledge?

This questionnaire is a requirement for TCEC participation. Answers are not made public by TCEC, but authors can so do of their own accord.
