Because Dragon lost one game and Sjende Blyn didn't.
So equal points for both.
And then SB is decisive, according to your own rules.
This has nothing to do with it. The most important thing is winning games, then draws and finally losing games.This is the case at every single tournament.

Re: Unofficial World Championship Of Computer Programs In International Draughts 2021

I completely agree with Hendrik and Kees. There is a difference in the functioning of the Draughts Arbiter program and the tournament rules. And in those cases the rules of the tournament take precedence. The regulations are leading, the program is next. Not the other way around. Całkowicie zgadzam...

Re: Unofficial World Championship Of Computer Programs In International Draughts 2021

Hello Krzysztof, The settings of DraughtsArbiter Pro are inconsistent with the tournament regulations. DraughtsArbiter: score, number of wins, S.B. Your regulations: score, S.B. In my opinion changing the regulations after completions of the tournament, as suggested by Hendrik, is not a good idea. ...

Re: Question about endgame databases

Honestly, I never really thought about it. I know that there was a proposal somewhere that all drafts engines should use one ending database during the next tournament.

Re: Unofficial World Championship Of Computer Programs In International Draughts 2021

Yes of course. That is the whole point of writing. In the Netherlands for tie break regulations "the understandable thing" is SB for Round Robin tournaments. For non Round Robin tournaments it is WP (=Buchholz / Solkoff) followed by SB. It is perfectly possible to have these settings in Arbiter Pro...

Re: Unofficial World Championship Of Computer Programs In International Draughts 2021

And of course the number of points in the tournament. Do you have to write understandable things on the website.

Re: Unofficial World Championship Of Computer Programs In International Draughts 2021

On page https://toernooibase.kndb.nl/ Eric van Dusseldorp is writing : Het toernooi wordt toch beslist door: aantal punten en daarna SB? Dus het aantal overwinninge speelt geen rol (lijkt me ook onzin in een toernooi voor computerprogramma's). Dus de stand na 32 rondes op Toernooibase klopt niet hel...

Re: Unofficial World Championship Of Computer Programs In International Draughts 2021

Hi Krzysztof, There is no rule that states when you have only one move (a capture) that you have to perform this move immediately. In this case I let the engine calculate with reduced time to get a reasonable ponder move. I agree that a GUI could make life more easy, but writing a GUI for just one ...

Re: Unofficial World Championship Of Computer Programs In International Draughts 2021

Krzysztof, thanks again for organizing this tournament! It's amazing that you are willing to put such an amount of effort into this event. For me this event was very helpful, it gave me a lot of insight in what reasonably could be improved. For one thing an EGDB is really necessary to avoid steppin...
