Leela Accepted in WCCC

Leela Chess Zero has been accepted in the 2018 World Computer Chess Championships (WCCC). Looking at the WCCC participant list, we see we’re up against the following:

  • Chiron
  • Shredder
  • Jonny
  • Pauline
  • Booot
  • Hiarcs
  • The Baron
  • Komodo
  • GridGinkgo

There’s still two open spots, so we’ll keep an eye out. Chiron, Pauline and Leela won’t be using a “loan machine” (by which I assume a PC provided by the organizers).

After the disappointment of no GPU in TCEC, it’s exciting to get a chance for Leela performing to her potential.
