I left Data online for a while, but once people noticed the change to the prize fund it turned into a ghost-town. Rather than just sit idle I now donate CPU cycles to stockfish development. It’s easy to do and even comes with an auto-installer. If you’re bored too, come crunch some code to make stockfish better!
you can find easy install instructions at: https://github.com/glinscott/fishtest/wiki/A-portable-fishtest-worker-for-Windows-64-bit
If I see one of you online (and I’m at home) I’ll login to see if we can get a game going, but it just seemed a waste to sit idle 22 hours a day.
Hopefully they will bring the tourney back one day =8-)
