Falcon is back too. I'm really curious to see by how much it improved since 2004. Some Falcon's games here (the one against Shredder is kind of spectacular): http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessplayer?pid=29489

Fritz will only compete if it knows it can win. With Rybka around, it will be a long long long long long long long long long long long long while before it will join a tournament

I think Fritz find it more shameful if it did not win than to participate

I think you are wrong ... I think it will take even longer than that.

If you are talking about the engine from Omid David, then it has been playing in WBEC for a while with the name Maestro..
