I have now started the 'official' tournament. Seven engines are participating:

1. Catalyst       (Richard Albert)
2. ChessV         (Gregory strong)
3. Fairy-Max 4.8R (H.G.Muller)
4. Nebiyu 1.1     (Daniel Shawul)
5. Oberon 0.04    (Pawel Koziol)
6. Sjaak 92       (Evert Glebbeek)
7. Spartacus 0.23 (H.G.Muller)

The games are broadcasted live at http://80.100.28.169/spartan/spartan.html 

The first qualifier cycle has completed. Spartacus and Nebiyu faced 6-fold
time-odds in this cycle. This is needed to make their games with the others more
interesting and relevant. The results were:

Spartacus, Nebiyu, Sjaak and Fairy-Max went to the play-offs, which was run
without time odds. The final result (keeping the results of the qualifier) was:
