|Jun-30-09|| ||kellmano: Anyone know the time limits?
Perhaps this event should be called The World Chess Chamionship and Topalov - Anand should be The Human World Chess Championship.
|Jun-30-09|| ||WhiteRook48: when I saw Rybka at 8/9 I was extremely surprised it didn't win all of them|
|Jun-30-09|| ||Anatoly21: We had a World Computer Chess Championship without Fritz? Something is missing here ...|
|Jun-30-09|| ||Ezzy: When humans say chess will be 'played out' eventually, games like this one tell you that it is a long way from happening. Junior totally disregards material and produces a stunning attack. Most computers will see a big plus for white during the game, until it takes a while to see that black's attack is unstoppable. Unbelievable game!!|
Jonny vs Junior, 2009
|Jun-30-09|| ||kurtrichards: Too many draws for Shredder.|
|Jun-30-09|| ||SatelliteDan: How come Zappa doesn't compete in this?|
|Jun-30-09|| ||ChessJock: Why is Fritz not in this competition? Is ChessBase afraid to admit the obvious?|
|Jun-30-09|| ||HeMateMe: One think I really like about these computer tournaments is that there are not nearly so many draws as in human tournaments. The 'Bots seem to be able to find the 'truth' in a position and ram an advantage home.|
|Jun-30-09|| ||SatelliteDan: <HeMateMe: One think I really like about these computer tournaments is that there are not nearly so many draws as in human tournaments.>
|Jul-01-09|| ||stardust762: I would like to see the game "The World x Ribka". I am not sure whether rybka can beat us.|
|Jul-01-09|| ||Eric The Great: I've only heard of Rybka and Shredder before this tournament.|
|Jul-01-09|| ||Knight13: <When humans say chess will be 'played out' eventually.> Funny that someone in 2009 would still think like those people in the first half of 20th century. An idea long abandoned by chess masters.|
|Jul-01-09|| ||hedgeh0g: <I would like to see the game "The World x Ribka". I am not sure whether rybka can beat us.>|
Probably not, because "The World" is essentially Rybka anyway...
|Jul-01-09|| ||The Rocket: why do they have the joker program in a WORLD-CHAMPIONSHIP it clearly plays like a 1200.... doesnt make sence to me... is it even a "joke" on the programers part to make it play bad??|
|Jul-01-09|| ||The Rocket: and how the joker program have an elo evaluted rating at 2403?!, no way it plays at even 2000 level: ...|
|Jul-02-09|| ||Nadark: There should have been Fritz 11 to make the tournament more interesting.|
|Jul-02-09|| ||HeMateMe: Does anyone know who 'resigns' a game in which a computer program is losing? Does the program make the decision, or is it a human handler?|
|Jul-03-09|| ||The Rocket: A computer can be set to give up the game after the evalution is hopeless, but usually its the programers that resign in these championships|
|Jul-06-09|| ||timhortons: <Probably not, because "The World" is essentially Rybka anyway...>|
its rybka that comes in different core:)
|Jul-07-09|| ||turbo231: Rybka is the real world champion not anand.The only human that has beaten rybka "headsup" has been nakamura.Kramnik couldn't even beat fritz!|
|Jul-07-09|| ||timhortons: <The only human that has beaten rybka "headsup" has been nakamura>|
at icc game not only naka beat rybka heads up,carlsen did it too,GM rustemov did it too, bassim amin did it too and a lot more GM but only nakas game really satisfy human senses because he mate rybka with 6 bishop, 8 knights and with countless other antics and style.
oh yay, in blitz at icc you mean? and mind you since transwarp upgraded to rybka 3 ,naka only win once after lossing hundreds of game.
im a big nakamura fan and a very satisfied rybka costumer, lets not confuse things here.
rybka team is challenging naka to a game, in standard time control but naka did not answer it.
|Jul-17-09|| ||Everett: chess is culture, an art, a form of human expression, a battle in thinking clearly through strong emotions. A computer program does not have to deal with all the things that make us human. Thus, "their" (the programmer's) success is not as impressive or relevant. Great educational tools, though.|
|Jul-22-09|| ||YouRang: Observations:
- No engine lost to any engine that finished below it.
- Shredder was the only engine to not lose to any of the engines that finished above it (i.e. it finished 3rd and managed to draw its 2 games against the engines above).
- Pandix was the only engine to not win against any of the engines that finished below it (i.e. in finished 9th and was only able to draw its 1 game against the engine below).
- HIARCS and Jonny won every game against the engines that finished below them (and had, of course, no other wins).
- All in all, the combined record of engines playing against other engines that finished lower was +33 -0 =12, or 86.7%.
So, it seems that engine/computer strength is nearly deterministic of the game outcome -- certainly more so than we see in human chess.
To be expected, I suppose.
|Aug-01-09|| ||The Rocket: we know that Rybka is the best but I always assumed that the engines below Rybka, Shredder, Junior, could really end up anywere and that the results between the computers are purely random am I wrong?.|
If I understand it correctly the engines are all having the same proccesors in this championship to make it fair, so this should mean that the outcome between the engines around the same elo are purely random?.
