Re: Testposition

yes, after 5-8 hours of further manual investigation (practically exclusevly in the 21....Kh7, 22.Bc2 Bd7 line) i didnt come far in terms of sth concrete...atm i would consider the simple 22.Bxh5 line (22.Qg3 looks like a transposition to me) as the mainline as well...there are some points to invest...

Re: Andriy Slyusarchuk vs Rybka 4.01 (game1)

im almost sure that 39...Bc5 is a loosing move now...and 38...Ba3 is probably still holding...at least i couldnt find a win although i tried as hard as i could...i was going through the lines about 12-15 hours finally.

currently i tend to withdraw my conclusion of 38...Ba3?! as being decisive already...tired now of analysing and going to sleep...as it seems move 39 or 40 is more promising in terms of make such claims...sry for that if true, good night and cya friends.
