I am back…

Currently I play again a few Chess960 tournaments, I got rid of windows, so only for Linux engines. Links are updated as well, let me know if there is something wrong or missing!

WBEC Ridderkerk

I can’t recall when I started to use chess engines without own interface. But I know WBEC Ridderkerk was already there, a source for all winboard engines and huge engine tournaments. The tournaments wasn’t a kind of scientific work like modern ratinglists, they where a real event. Programmers where proud to take part and supported Leo with necessary options and bugfixes. Leo always respected not just the best engines but also the weak ones and gave them much attention. C0mputer chess wouldn’t be the same without Leo, he motivated programmers, gave them webspace and competition. I learned to know Leo when I started with my UCI engine webpages, and he was always a helpful and kind person, also to “competing” webmasters. In 2014 he stopped his tournaments because the mass of clones and derivates made him lose the pleasure. But he already struggled with cancer for nearly two years at this time.

Leo lost his final battle two weeks ago.

We will keep him in fond memory.

Schach der Großmeister

Unfortunately only in german:

“Schach der Großmeister” is a legendary german TV show where 2 Grandmasters played a live game commented by Vlastimil Hort and Helmut Pfleger. I found this now on youtube and watched some of them. It is also very interesting in matters of computerchess history. You can see Ossi Weiner commenting the games with help of Mephisto units and later Matthias Wüllenweber with help of Chessbase and Fritz, Gerd Isenberg with Isichess and Frederic Friedel.

If you have 42h of free time watch it here:
