The 6th game (currently running) is really interesting.
At move 48 Rybka has played the Black king to g5 in a vey complex middle game position.
Will Houdini crack Rybka's defense?

White Bishop is very strong in this game.
I think Rybka has this game.
Nice game.

Ok Rybka had black. I thought Rybka had white in game 6.
My mistake.

Good game for white.

Quite a few people has stated that Rybka 4 is a lot better at
long TC. This match should give some answers to that.

Best,
Gerold.

DF 12 GUI crashed while running game 18.

It was almost drawn but the database was corrupted and it displayed game 18 as a 5 move draw.

Thanks for your support!

Houdini won game 20 to make the score 11.5 - 8.5 in favor of Rybka.

Game 21 is underway, now we have a interesting King's Gambit (accepted), with Rybka as white. Game 22 will have the same opening, but with Houdini as white.

Anyone watched Carlsen play the King's Gambit in Bazna?

Thanks for this interesting match, Martin.

By the way, game 25 is a clear draw. In order to get the rythm of the match more active I suggest you to finish this game with a draw and go to 26.

Regards,

Tom.
