be proud, you have reached the first and most important step in chess
programming, your program makes chess moves and was able to start in a
tournament. Be sure all chess programmers have started on a much weaker level,
than they have today. It takes normally many years, depending on the time you
have, to create a strong chess program. So be sure, if you not stop working on
your engine, it will become stronger and stronger.
I'm sorry for your final result, but perhaps in the next tournament, your prog
will be able to make the first points. So good luck from me for your next
