August, 19. The second set ending of match human-computer was gave out fantastic on a pressure. Even the rules could not provide, that three basic and 6 (!!!) additional parties will be finished in a draw. In one of short parties the engineering has given up - the computer has made an impossible course (the truth in almost won position), but Samb has magnanimously agreed to a drawn game. The award for gentlemanliness became a victory in 7-th party of tie-break and - in a match. Bravo, Samb! Many thanks to Nicolas Guibert for the organization of an entertainment match!

The start list of championship participants will be formed according to given tenders. If the number of tenders will be less than 30 then only one tournament will be kept, otherwise two leagues (1st and 2d) might be established.
