    If you like chess engines, this maybe for you...

    I just found this a couple hours ago: http://ycatourn.webs.com/

    They live stream computer chess tournaments.
    Their first tournament starts SEPTEMBER 30 2010 11:30PM EST (New York Time) and the live stream will be available.

    This is actually quite cool! According to website, first tournament will feature 8 strong chess engines:
    Rybka 4, Rybka 3 Normal, Naum 4.2, Stockfish 1.8, Fire 1.31, Cyclone xTreme Fear, IvanHoe T63-Tactical, DamirsPositionalPlayer04

    So, what you guys think of this? I think it's awesome, im gona watch this! 🙂

    See ya tomorrow for the live event.

    If there is a sin against chess, it lies not so much in computers, but in ignoring the implacable grandeur of human play. At the Chess Olympiad. Which is going on now.

    Mr. Enrico: So then subtract one, four minus one is three.

    Mr. Grad: Okay.
