Hi Krzysztof,

It's not very important but note that 2 means "random" (1 = normal and 0 = best). The difference is very small though.

I also assume that your i3(s) have 2 cores (and no hyper-threading), so I don't understand the "threads" settings in some of the engines.

Of course I change to 0. As for the processor's Intel Core I3 350M, the processor supports 2 cores and 4 threads. Fabien here you have everything processor Intel Core I3 350M http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i3/I ... 161AC.html

Please ask for the author engine Berta Tuyt. By the way, please write my name correctly, because a lot of people on this forum mistakenly wrote my name.

Hi Krzysztof!

Great tournament!
If i may i will make a sugestion: in the next tournament you could make a "qualifying stage" between the previous last place (in this case Cerberus) and other programs like for example: Dream Dames, Plus 500, Windames 3D...
It's just an idea. :idea:

Please continue and good games.
