We have to congratulate the new champion as well.  Considering everything, this was one of the more remarkable victories ever, very impressive.

Congrats Eros! Flawless play in this and the previous freestyle. A well deserved victory - make sure you buy some champagne!

Eros Riccio what engine are you used to last tourbey CSS/PAL ? Rybka or Zappa ?
Parent - By Sebastian Boehme (**) [de] Date 2008-04-28 17:21
He used Deep Sjeng and Yace Paderborn. :-) :-)

Seeing this picture should help people see the huge advantages of playing freestyle tournaments over the internet rather than over the board. Taken out of context, one might get the impression that Eros is a dangerous psychopath.

Maybe that's a requirement to win the Freestyle? :)

Here's an experiment for you to try:

Print out the pictures of all the freestyle winners (the winners from previous freestyles are available in Arno's reports and elsewhere). Then, ask a number of people who have never heard of freestyle to identify the person most likely to be an ax murderer. :-)

Regards,
Alan

Why do I have the feeling that Eros would win that as well? :)

Have you ever seen a photo from the sheik?
Parent - By Banned for Life (Gold) Date 2008-04-29 05:41
No.
Parent - By Sebastian Boehme (**) [de] Date 2008-04-28 17:23
Congrats first of all to Eros Riccio for a deserved win!

But also my congratulations go to all who made it to the final. It is very hard to get to it in such a highly competitive field of players.

If you are intersted in Regina H-Milch (Uwe Märtens), please have a look here (only German). A short summary in Englisch. Uwe Märtens played with this hardware:
1. Opteron 885 (16-core with 8 x dual 2,4 Ghz, 32 GB RAM). Here only Zappa played with 6500 kn/s (starting position). This machine stands near to Los Angeles (loan price 120 Euro for 4 days).
2. SUN X4450 (4 x Quadcore 2,93 Ghz, 16 GB RAM). Here only Rybka 2.3.2a played with 800 kn/s (starting position).  This machine stands in his bedroom (because of the noise; price 80 Euro per day plus insurance plus transport)
3. X5355 (8 core 2,66 Ghz). Analyzing machine.
4. And old notebook (one meter away to avoid faulty insertion) to send the "real" moves to playchess.
5. An old pc with a large monitor as remote station. Here he operates the servers #1 and #2.

Uwe Märtens has an DWZ about 2000 (fifteen years ago) and played alone. Some weeks before the final he was searching for machines for the final. 20 emails to computer center, universities and firms and all was right. He was near to get his beloved X7350 for a fair loan price, but finally it collapsed because of safety regulations.
Uwe seems to be a nice guy. He has played in freestyle before, but always has problems with his organisation. Therefore this time he made it serious. He admit, that he has had some luck in the last final.
