Heh, no I am not going to give any comments about the games :-)

If you don't know how well Tohno did, it's cause you didn't scroll down the
whole result page. Obviously Tohno was several levels weaker (depth=6, ~25kns)
than any other of the engines. I was hoping at least some other weak engine was
going to join, but no. Is Tohno's strength unique or am I the only author who is
brave enough to make a fool of my "program"?

I have followed this forum on and off for three years. Well, at the tourney I
was a little surprised of the very nice atmosphere between the authors. Fun
seeing all of you "live" at the same time. I am not used to talk during the
games with my "opponent", but it was interesting discussing our programs and
other topics.

A big thanks go to the TD Volker. Never seen a tourney running so smooth. I was
sure the first round would be delayed (with all ICC-newbies, disconnections and
the number of participants). Great Work! Also IM Schroer's close follow of the
games and knowledge increased the joy.

The last round became very exciting, and with that hardware Crafty was
impressive. If Zappa would have had a real opening book or Movei used egtb it
might have been different. But it's just a game (well 15 games). Congrats to
Bob! Must feels good.

This was my first CCT, and not last if the tradition will continue. I support
the idea of having it twice a year. One standard and one blitz (preferable
round-robin in Tomato). But now I have some homework to do...
