The fifth round has started on time. The only adaption today we have done is to change the time control to 35 minutes + 15 seconds per move. In this way we hope to stay within the possible time limits.

The results of the first day an the standings can be found here: 52nd Programmer Tournament. It also contains the rounds to play. PGN files can be found here: default CSVN Programmer Tournament 52 (44 KB) . Unfortunately this tournament no photos, as your reporter left his camera at home.

In short: The Baron is leading with 3.5 out of 4 followed by a group of three programs with 3 out of 4: Arminius, The King and Dirty.


  • Nemeton - Arminius 0-1
  • Embla - The Baron 0-1
  • The King - Chess22k 1/2
  • Gadget - RedQueen 0-1
  • Spartacus - Dirty 0-1

The first round has started. We decided to go for 9 rounds instead of 7 as this lets everybody play everybody, which gives all 10 players play each other once. Time control changed to 40 minutes + 15 seconds per move.

The pairing:

  • The King - Gadget
  • Chess22k - Arminius
  • The Baron - Redqueen
  • Nemeton - Dirty
  • Embla - Spartacus
