Android Engines Tournament: Group B

Group B has finished a complete thirty seconds-per-move tournament in Chess for Android, played from both sides of all positions in the Nunn opening suite under the conditions described earlier. Regrettably I found that Crafty was put at a slight disadvantage (not something that would have changed the outcome though) due to a misinterpretation of XBoard's resign plus move command, causing a resign by illegal move in the next game. This issue has been fixed now.

Congratulations to IvanHoe for its promotion to Group A.

All games can be downloaded from the tournament page.
