Hi Sidiki,

Thank you for organizing this tournament. I understand it's a lot of work to play all these games by hand, and to keep track of what the programs are doing without making a mistake.

As you already know, I'm working on the next version of Ares, that will be better and hopefully stronger, so I won't be making updates for the old version anymore.

Sidiki, thanks for organizing.
Hope you fully recovered from your illness.
Remarkable that 4 programs ended with the same number of points (38).
Apparently strength differences are small.

Hi Bert,

Thanks again, yes strenght it's small and i think that without some programs as Dream, Plus500 and Aurora Borealis, they will be too close.

We hope that before the next tournament, some programs will be more stronger.

Thanks to all the programmers for permit it.

Friendly, Sidiki.
