Jun-20-05  James Tiberius Kirk: A GM scalp for HYDRA, with many more to come?

castling queenside in the Ruy exchange, seems odd, but it worked great for the computer

Jun-20-05  fgh: Here are some possible lines on how the game will finish, for those who are interested:

37. ... Kd5 38. Rg3 and after white grabs the g7 pawn, black will either get mated or lose a lot of material.

37. ... Ke6 38. Qc6+ and black loses the queen.

37. ... Ke4 and now I will try out this crazy king persecution: 38. Rf4+ Ke3 39. Qe5+ Kd2 40. Rf2+ Kd1 41. Qe2#

A side variation: 37. ... Ke4 38. Rf4+ Kd5 39. Qd7+ Ke5 (39. ... Qd6 40. Rf5+ Ke4 41. Qxd6 and white wins.) 40. Rg4 and after white removes the g7 pawn, black should get mated soon.

Jul-04-06  spirit: there is something me consider very fantastic in this game...22.e5!
