Re: WCCC China 2008 (Round 3)

[quote="Gerd Isenberg Hi Peter, I don't see a big difference say to 2004 Ramat-Gan, except we all are four years older now. Why should it be the last one?

Re: Zappa v Rybka Game 9 - a Caro-Kann

22. f4 looks like a horrible positional mistake, doesn't it?

Reminds me of a game Nimzowitch-Capablanca ( Peter in Alzheimer mode).

Re: Livingston Chess960 Computer World Championship 2007

I have installed the latest GUI version via the Fritz server but this seems to be a different issue. My Junior 10 engine is from 05.07.2006 and calls itself 10.0...
