What a finish by icycookie!
I am not sure I can cope with the pressure of defending humankind's honour. I don't even know whether I should upgrade the challenges to advanced bots - maybe I will do a practice round playing IMPs to get used to the basic bot...

Indeed, congrats icycookie on an impressive score, GIB on proving all of the doubters wrong and commiserations to garant_7 for missing out on the semis by just a board and a half in his first tournament.

Semifinals are icycookie vs twisterrz, and GIB vs cherdano - 4 challenges of 16 boards each.

cherdano, perhaps PM me the results instead of posting them here, and I may attempt a brief commentary. Am looking forward to this one :)
Feel free to send me a friend challenge of any format as often as you like. I'll always accept :)

cherdano, hold off on playing your SF against the bot. I'm looking into whether we'll pay for your entries so you can play against advanced bots.

Maybe he prefers to beat the basic bot :)

Commentating a match is much harder that I thought :) Haven't had much time recently so will just post the first two quarters here:

GIB won 4 of the first 8 boards, winning the first quarter 9-7:

cherdano then bettered this by winning 4 of the first 5 boards of the second quarter:

Half way score: cherdano 16.5 - 15.5 GIB

It's all down to icycookie - can he deny GIB a landmark title?

I have a question. In all the hundreds of boards I played with GIB, it has never make a weak 2 bid. Has anyone ever seen GIB make a weak 2 bid?
