Shredder shocks T-More, Spike wins battle of world champions
Livingston man-machine exhibition matches
16.08.2006 - One the the traditional ingredients during the Chess Classic: man-machine matches. Last year, we saw the world premiere in Chess960 of the man-machine match between Shredder and Almasi, Svidler played and won against the Dutch program The Baron. This year, the winner of the first Chess960 Computer Chess World championship, the German program Spike, developed by local heroes Ralf Schäfer and Volker Böhm played two games against the Chess960 World Champion Peter Svidler. The Russian star was not at all happy with his first game, because almost immediately after playing the first move, he saw some opportunities for his opponent. Svidler´s position did not look promising after the opening, but Spike could not really break through and played some inaccurate moves. Svidler said at the press conference that he wanted try something, moved his king to the other side of the board and openend the game. But playing against a computer in an open position is not a good idea. Spike grabbed an pawn, snatched another one and won the game in the end. In the second game there was less excitement, the peaceful game ended in a draw. more...

Kick off in Mainz: Naiditsch shows surprise lead in Chess960 Match
Day 1- Press conference-Clererical Medical Chess960 World Championship-Anand simul
16.08.2006 - The Chess Classic Mainz 2006 has started. For the sixth time, the city of Mainz, lying on the banks of the river Rhine, acts as host city for this year´s tournament. In 2001, the first Chess Classic Mainz was played, but from 1994 to 2000 the tournament took place in Frankfurt. “I was asked to explain the difference between Frankfurt and Mainz­­­­ in several interviews”, Hans-Walter Schmitt said during the opening press conference on Tuesday. ”The difference is that the towers in Frankfurt are higher, but the performance and love for chess in Mainz is higher than in Frankfurt. After we had a top tournament with the top 10 players of the world in 2000, we decided to move to Mainz one year later, because the city and the mayor Jens Beutel were eager to promote a new kind of chess: Chess960.” And this exciting kind of chess seems to attract more and more players...and sponsors. Schmitt: “This year we are happy that we have found a new sponsor, Clerical Medical, for the Chess960 World Championship matches. During the press conference, the company was represented and introduced by Falko König, (an appropiate name: König meaning King!). more...
