Due to time constraints on the Friday afternoon, the World Computer Speed Chess ended almost at closing time. This tournament ended with both Leela Chess Zero and Ginkgo on top of the ranking list. And therefore the decision was made to call both programs World Champion Computer Speed Chess 2022. Congratulations to both teams!
After a tense play-off on Friday, an Armageddon game between Komodo Dragon and Leela Chess Zero was necessary. As this game also ended in a draw, Komodo Dragon is the new (and old) World Computer Chess Champion. Congratulations to Mark Lefler, Larry Kaufmann, Erdo Gunes and the team!
Today the World Computer Chess Championships have started in Vienna, Austria. This tournaments lasts until Friday, with three games per day and one on Friday.
After the play-off with two games 10 minutes + 10 seconds per move everything was equal again. To find a winner of the tournament, an Armageddon game was played with white having 6 minutes + 10 seconds per move and black 3 minutes + 5 minutes per move. This game resulted in a draw by repetition and therefore the winner of this tournament is Ginkgo.
The organisation congratulates Ginkgo, his programmer Frank Schneider and operator Wolfgang Zugrav!
