A total of eight engines will qualify for the next stage of TCEC. Here is the official poll of stage 1, who will qualify? Vote below by selecting eight of the engines.
Once you vote, leave an answer in the comments widget at the end of this page with the correct order of the top 8 engines that you predict will qualify. The one with the closest prediction will win a product from the Chessdom shop and will be crowned the winner of the Stage 1 official poll competition.
How will the comments below participating in the competition be evaluated?
The comments below will be evaluated position by position in eight rounds. Round 1 will be passed if the user has correctly guessed the winner of Stage 1 and all others will be eliminated. Round 2 will be passed by the user that has correctly guessed the 1st and the 2nd position in Stage 1, etc.
This means that even if you guess positions 2 to 7, but have mistaken the winner of the stage, you will most probably be at the end of the standings.
If two or more users have reached the same “Round” no tiebreak will be used and all will receive the prize.
Until when are comments accepted?
A comment eligible for the competition cannot be posted later than October 20th.
