Chess Classic

Going once, going twice, going three times, Rybka!

31.07.2009 - In the FiNet Chess960 Open, Alexander Grischuk won his third Open title in Mainz and in the Livingston Chess960 computer world championship Rybka won her (remember, Rybka is a she) third world title. The program, developed by Vasik Rajlich won the four-game final on Friday 3-1 against Shredder and in the battle for third place DeepSjeng could secure third place in the mini-match against Ikarus.


In the preliminaries, Rybka crushed her opponents and scored an unbelievable “Fischer-like” score of 11,5/12 games. However, in the exhibition blitz Rybka lost her first game this week and it became obvious that the program is not unbeatable. In the first game of the final against Shredder, the German program possibly had a winning position, but Rybka found some tactical resources and even won the game in the end. Shredder-father Stefan Meyer-Kahlen commented: “The problem is that Rybka often finds these spectacular tactical escapes and in this game my opponent possibly searched deeper than Shredder”. In the other games Shredder had chances as well and all games were hard-fought. In the end Rybka won the final 3-1 (+2=2-0) and Rybka brainchild Vasik Rajlich received his third trophy from Chess Tigers treasurer Jürgen Wienecke.

The winner
The happy World Champion Vasik Rajlich

In the fight for third place, DeepSjeng convincingly won two games and seemed to be in cruise-control mode in game 3 and 4. Ikarus won both games, equalized the score and therefore a blitz tie-break was necessary. DeepSjeng won both blitz games. It was another nice tournament, which took place in a friendly atmosphere. The Belgian referee and games expert Hans Secelle had no trouble leading the world championship. The programmers discussed various complicated aspects of chess programming for hours on end. We will see the result soon, because Rybka and Shredder will release new versions of their programs this year! Visit www.rybkachess.com and www.shredderchess.com for the latest information about the new releases.

Results of the final:
Rybka-Shredder 3-1
DeepSjeng-Ikarus 2-2 (Tie-break 2-0)
