(Y)et (A)nother (T)ournament
YAT is a bi-monthly computer-computer tournament (authors only) that emulates a human-human tournament or a SSDF | ICGA | CSVN | CCT tournament as close as possible in the sense that opening books are allowed, all kind of learning is allowed, opponent preparation is allowed and last but not least that engine authors have the right to know the name and elo rating of the opponent.
Red being the opponent elo, green the elo rating of your program. You can choose to ignore this information but on the other hand if you for instance know your opponent is 500-600 elo better then maybe it's a smart move to set your contempt factor on a full pawn (or so) and take the first occasion on a 3-fold repetion and celebrate the ½ point as a victory.
Start tournament at April 1, 2016 so you can make preparations.
If you are interested subscribe. Mail me, or PM me at Talkchess or use the contact form.
