  RandomVisitor: The time control they were playing was 45 minutes for the game, with 5 seconds added per move made (45 + 5). Who knows how much time Zor champ had on its clock. Given that it was a final and that computers were involved (which might crash, hang or blow the time control) it was perhaps a good strategic decision to play out to the end.

  whatthefat: Rybka was up a pawn in the middlegame, there's its problem.
Jul-31-06  lopium: Why not 22.Bxd8? And how a computer can play 27...b3? maybe a3 was better and if Rb1 and later Be1, then probably b5 is a good move.

  THE pawn: Since Hydra won against all Rybkas in the second freestyle tournament, does this mean it is officially stronger than rybka?
Aug-17-06  gala.martin: <THE pawn> I guess that rybka did not support multi processor in that time. In the last freestyle, hydra did not qualify at all!

  spirit: thanks <jdoliner> now me know
Premium Chessgames Member
  THE pawn: <gala.martin> he didn't qualify at all because he signed out before the finals.
Premium Chessgames Member
  spirit: <THE pawn> why?
Dec-02-06  Confuse: same question as lopium.
Jun-16-07  MarvinTsai: I guess the ratings of chess programs would be like: Rybka > Hydra > Shredder > Junior > Fritz. I'd like to see more Hydra-Rybka games.
