Chess Classic

Shredder and Rybka qualify for the final
Exciting final expected between top chess programs

16.08.2007 - Defending Chess960 world champion Shredder and computer chess world champion Rybka will play the final of the 3rd Livingston Chess960 Computer Chess Tournament. Both programs scored 4 points. In the two games the programs played against each other the result was a draw, so we can expect an exciting final on Friday. The bronze medal will be at stake in the Spike vs. Jonny encounter. The Chess960 positions, played in the tournament were determined by rolling the Chess960 dice. Today, Vlastimil Hort, Gata Kamsky and Alexander Grishuk were responsible for the interesting starting positions.


Round 4

Grandmaster Vlastimil Hort manages to throw four “sixes” in a row before the bishops are put on a1 and b1. Although these cornered bishops usually guarantee some nices attacking games, Shredder has to concede a draw to Jonny and Rybka has to take it into a pawn ending before Spike finally succumbs. With two rounds to play, Shredder and Rybka have detached themselves from the pack. Spike – and even Jonny- still have a (small) theoretical chance to make it to the big final but to do so, they will have to win the two remaining games.

Round 5

With the bishops on b1 and g1, grandmaster Gata Kamsky is well on his way to “roll” Capablanca’s position (which is like ‘normal chess’, except that knights and bishops have traded places). Fate decides otherwise, but the symmetrical position, with the rooks already on their normal spots, looks incredibly interesting. Rybka manages to survive a real onslaught by her opponent and beats Jonny after a cracking fight. Shredder and Spike change off most of the pawns and when afterwards they also exchange lots of pieces, the resulting draw is the most logical outcome.


Round 6

Alexander Grishuk was willing to determine the starting position for the sixth round

Another typical Chess960 shuffle. In Jonny vs Spike, black slowly builds up a strong position by means of his so-called “bad bishop” where white is getting strangled. “Rien ne va plus and” and Spike wins a very comfortable rook ending. In Shredder vs Rybka, black suddenly comes up with a piece sacrifice out of thin air. Both programs think they are slightly better and when that happens, games very often end in a draw. This game is no exception. Shredder goes unbeaten into the big final but Rybka, keeping Shredder to two draws, will be a very worthy opponent. Pointing out a clear favourite at this stage seems to be impossible. All we need tomorrow are some interesting positions, and we’re in business for some hardhitting Chess960.
