Stage 4 Rules
Stage 4 consists of the 4 engines that qualified from Stage 3. It is a dodeca round robin (x 12) and the openings are chosen randomly per pair so that each engine will play both sides of the same opening against each other. The top 2 will qualify to play the Superfinal, while the other engines are out of TCEC for the current Season.
