Hi all,

I'll reply to this with the bit of info I can provide.
I participated on behalf of gnubg team in a past edition of computer olympics.
Due to lack of participants (only Frank and me), the format was absolutely
free, just some time constranits (having it over before a given time).
Atmosphere is 100% relax.

I don't see any particular requirement beside:
- having a non-prehistoric computer
- knowing how to "operate" gnubg, but I'm sure Frank knows this :)

Frank is a great person and a true backgammon passionate.
We all know the title is purely symbolical: it's not a short session that is
gonna decide which bot is the best. But it's a funny experience and you
can always put a beer in the side pot to add some spice to the match :)

I think there's some kind of fee to participate.
When I participated, gnubg won and I've shipped the medal to one of
the main developers (think it was Jon).
