Dear Chess Friends,

I am pleased to announce that,
I started a new tourney, where as players are based opening books
Mostly participants include games played mainly during 2020 year
XLII tour is similar to XXXV, exc. the based books are up to 80 plies
All derivative books are based on SCCT database, in CTG book format...
And I've done my best to tune and prefer their previous played openings
Note also that periodically I organize such book tours, with based books
Another example, here some results, mainly with derivative books: XII
More tourneys with based (derivative) books: VIII or XIV or XXVIII
What is the target of running such tours with based books? the answer:
Simply because my goal is to be played under more fair conditions...
In short, all books are CTG format, that means Book Learning for all...
Plus the sizes are quite close to each other (av 8-10 MB uncompressed)
Due to all of the derivative opening books consist av. 2000-2500 games
Note also (in normal tourneys) big books (in size) play with advantages.
Sure it all depends who is the creator as well.. however...reality is reality...
Just imagine, minus plus 1 GB vs 10 MB book = Auto car vs Bicycle )
I'd like to point out that too, no book matches: Private vs Available etc..
That's another very important factor, e.g mostly private performs better..
And almost all of the based book players contain decent opening lines...
In short, in the current XLII, all same, exc. the opening lines...and as
Usually the strongest ones are performing and ranking at higher places...
And XLII's results can be counted as overall performance (per author)
I don't plan to add the books such as CCRL, CEGT, FGRL, SCCT etc.
Due to the deep opening lines of above mentioned books not optimized...
Plus (in case of allowing as players...) no any chances to be as Winner...

Note also that,
As 2nd name of this XLII tour is SuperStar

In other words,
There are a lot of stars...and lets see (in this new tour):
Which one will manage to be as shiniest STAR ?)
And all this mystery will be clear very soon...

Tournament Details:
20 book participants x16 games = 304 games (per player), later:
Top 8 ranked books will be played extra 210 games (per player)
That means Top 8 will consist min 514 games, Total: 3880 games
If same points, there will be tiebreak..(for determining the Champ)

XLII's Current Leader: CF1977 - Congrats to Antony Rossetti!

Latest Update: 09.07.2020

Hello Chess Friends,

I am pleased to announce that,
I plan to start another new tour, again as players will be based books
In the next tourney: only XLII's Top 10 are planning to be as players
This time, all based books will be played min 1080 games (per player)
In this way, I think we can make a better conclusion which are strongest
All derivative books are new, tuned to prefer previous played openings
In short: SCCT database contain games since 24.06.2019 - 07.07.2020
Next results can be counted overall performance for one year (per author)
As far as possible, the high-ranked books games are preferred and used
And all based books are optimized / tuned to prefer (per player):
Draws are up to 20 moves, where the Wins up to 50 moves
In other words,, we can expect less draw percentage...let's see..
As usual, (for a better performance) :the defeats are removed...

And here are the planning Top 10 based books (in CTG format):

Attacker
CF1977
Cerebellum
Cevdet
DON
Kain
Kerveros
MZ
Noname
Vitamin

More details very soon


Best,
Sedat

Hello Chess Friends,

I am pleased to announce that,
I already started another new tour, again as players will be based books
In this tournament, only XLII Top 10 books are playing as participants
This time, all based books will be played min 1080 games (per player)
In this way, I think we can make a better conclusion which are strongest
All derivative books are new, tuned to prefer previous played openings
In short: SCCT database contain games since 24.06.2019 - 07.07.2020
Next played results can be counted as one year performance (per author)
As far as possible, the high-ranked books games are preferred and used
All based books are tuned to prefer their played openings (per player):
Draws are enabled up to 20 moves, where the Wins up to 50 moves

To be more clear,
Why the draws are optimized / imported to be played up to 20 moves?
Due to many of openings played each other (many times in older tours)
E.g if we enable the draws up to 50 moves, that means almost all games:
- Can be ended as draws...not so good idea to see a lot of boring games...
In short, simply my target to increase the winning percentage.. let's see..
Btw, my created books are not 100% same as the original opening books
But according to my experience, they are close to theirs opening styles...

Note also that for maximum performance, (as usual):
-Any book is used to play from separate folder of Brainfish engine.exe
- For each GUI installed separate books (to not affecting book learning)
- Internet connection is disabled, plus no any program to tray in taskbar
In other words, (on my tournament PC) no any program exc. chess...!)

Meanwhile,
In X tour, X author's book can be not so lucky.. for several reasons...
E.g not enough played games (per book), or not so well-prepared etc..
Or some books are much bigger in size, or some in BIN book format..
Where in this tour, I give a BIG chance, picked the high-ranked books
Min 1080 games (per player) and exactly same ctg book setting for all...
Plus, these openings played during year, that means, more equal, fair...
And almost all books are close in size, I mean no BIG advantages etc
In short, I've done my best to compare/see which one will be the best

And, (as I stated earlier)
All of them are very dangerous, superior strong, born to win...!!
And all of them are in quality as Diamonds in VVS1 (in clarity)
However, let's see which one will be certificated as Lupenrein ?!)

Good luck to all...

XLIII's Current Leader: CF1977 - Congrats to Antony Rossetti!

In short, I've done my best to compare/see which one will be the best
Sure...when I say 'best' ...I am meaning about XLIII's conditions...!)

Btw, without to not mention this I can't,
Even any based book, which will manage to be as Champ (in this tour),
It does not mean in reality is best ..., because for a such strong saying:
In every tour, as best mentioned author's openings should be as Winner
And as far as I know...no one managed to that...but this is also true:
Usually the Top authors books are performing at higher places... !
E.g, even in this tour: some opening lines are old dated, some newer...
That's why it's impossible to determine exactly who is best of the best!
Actually I believe in that, the right method to determine who is the best:
All books should be private, not old-dated in lines, created on same date,
Plus all of them should be in same book format, very close in size etc.
Furthermore, each book should be played min 1000 games, more better..
Sure... against many many various players...otherwise not so clear...
And only after that, we can make better conclusions who is the best ...
Anyhow just fun tour, so please don't take too seriously the results

And, (as I stated earlier)
All of them are very dangerous, superior strong, born to win...!!
And all of them are in quality as Diamonds in VVS1 (in clarity)
However, let's see which one will be certificated as Lupenrein ?!)

Good luck to all...

XLIII's Current Leader: MZ - Congrats to Marco Zerbinati!

Latest Update: 13.07.2020


Hello Chess Friends,

I am pleased to announce that,
One of my greatest tours is ended, again as players are based books!
In this tournament, only XLII Top 10 books are played as participants
This time, all based books are played min 1080 games (per player)
In this way, I think we can make a better conclusion which are strongest
All derivative books are new, tuned to prefer previous played openings
In short: SCCT database contain games since 24.06.2019 - 07.07.2020
Final results can be counted as one year performance (per book author)
As far as possible, the high-ranked books games are preferred and used
All based books are tuned to prefer their played openings (per player):
Draws are enabled up to 20 moves, where the Wins up to 50 moves

To be more clear,
Why the draws are optimized / imported to be played up to 20 moves?
Due to many of openings played each other (many times in older tours)
E.g if we enable the draws up to 50 moves, that means almost all games:
- Can be ended as draws...not so good idea to see a lot of boring games...
In short, simply my target to increase the winning percentage.. let's see..
Btw, my created books are not 100% same as the original opening books
But according to my experience, they are close to theirs opening styles...

What is the main difference between: the recent XLII and current XLIII?
- In XLII: the based books are up to 40 moves (all games: draws and wins)
- Almost all of the books are based on games played on latest 5-6 months
- Played less games (520 per player),, but against more various opponents
- In the current XLIII: the draws up to 20 moves, the wins up to 50 moves
- Mostly of based books contain more games (played on latest 12 months)
- Only Top 10 books are playing each other, plus 1080 games (per player)
So..some based opening books can gain more points or some may suffer ..

Note also that for maximum performance, (as usual):
- Any book is used to play from separate copy of Brainfish engine.exe
- For each GUI installed separate books (to not affecting book learning)
- Internet connection is disabled, plus no any program to tray in taskbar
In other words, (on my tournament PC) no any program exc. chess...!)

Meanwhile,
In X tour, X author's book can be not so lucky.. for several reasons...
E.g not enough played games (per book), or not so well-prepared etc..
Or some books are much bigger in size, or some in BIN book format..
Where in this tour, I give a BIG chance, picked the high-ranked books
Min 1080 games (per player) and exactly same ctg book setting for all...
Plus, these openings played over a year, that means, more equal, fair...
And almost all books are close in size, I mean no BIG advantages etc
In short, I've done my best to compare/see which one will be the best
Sure...when I say 'best' ...I am meaning about XLIII's conditions...!)

Btw, without to not mention this I can't,
Any book, which is managed to be as Champ (in this or in older tours),
It does not mean in reality is best ..., because for a such strong saying:
In every tour, as best mentioned author's openings should be as Winner
And as far as I know...no one managed to that...but this is also true:
Usually the Top authors books are performing at higher places... !
E.g, even in this tour: some opening lines are old dated, some newer...
That's why it's impossible to determine exactly who is best of the best!
Actually I believe in that, the right method to determine who is the best:
All books should be private, not old-dated in lines, created on same date,
Plus all of them should be in same book format, very close in size etc.
Furthermore, each book should be played min 1000 games, more better..
Sure... against many many various players...otherwise not so clear...
And only after that, we can make better conclusions who is the best ...
Anyhow just fun tour, so please don't take too seriously the results

As I stated earlier,
All of them are very dangerous, superior strong, born to win...!!
And all of them are in quality as Diamonds in VVS1 (in clarity)
Now, let's see, which ones are certificated as Lupenrein ?)

And congratulations and many thanks to all book authors,
Without YOU: These exciting tours would not exist!
And it is my great pleasure to organize...

XLIII's Champion: CF1977 - Congrats to Antony Rossetti!

Dear Chess Friends,

I am pleased to announce that,
I hope to start a tournament where as players will be based books...
But this time, as openings will be tested from the past to the present...!
XLIV competition will be similar to previous ones, (with based books)
Exception, my created new books: draws up to: 50 plies / wins: 100 plies
Plus in this tournament, I hope to test more than 100 opening books...
The derivative books will be based on games played in 2007- 2020 years
And as book players, I hope to pick mainly from SCCT Book Tourneys
The frequent books will be chosen, e.g with 2000+ games (per player)
E.g many of the frequent authors books contain over than 3000 games
Note also that, the oldest played games will be not merged into new....
I mean, all these books will include games, played in close date of time...
Any based book will be optimized to prefer (as main move) the wins...
Sure, as alternative opening line, the draws will be enabled for playing..
In short, these based books are not 100% same as the original books
But theirs opening styles are quite close to previous played openings...

Just to be more clear,
The target of XLIV is not to determine who is Best Book Maker!
Because, according to my experience:there is no such thing, word...
And any book performance depends on decent strong opening lines
E.g, the old-dated openings have no much chance to be at Top ranks
Or the books, such as CCRL, CEGT, SCCT etc.will suffer for sure..
Due to the mentioned above books prefer to play various openings
Moreover, theirs deep opening lines are not tuned..(e.g after 8 moves)

In other words, I expect (as usual):
The latest and strongest deep trend openings to perform better...!

However, my goal is simply just for fun, but in same time...let's see:
-Which opening books will manage to be as strongest of all time..?!

More details coming soon...


Best,
Sedat
