WCCC Update, Day 2
Cyril had to go home because of a family issue. The operator is now TCECfan and the hardware is a the same 2x1080ti system made available by TheAnswer for TCEC bonus coverage.
Black against Gridginko. Again, no opening book, and it had its consequences. Chris Whittington said it best:
Game 3 was a positional train wreck. Backwards moves Ne8, Bf8, Ra8. Then allowing a QR battery on its own back rank, with pin threats and mate threats.
White against Chiron. Another English with Leela’s peculiar Be3 in front of the e2 pawn. Leela as white likes to trade off pieces early in the opening. Draw.
