Draw .. White had an advantage but Rybka somehow missed that as well.

Congrats Zappa! Hopefully this sets Anthony's return. With new Zappa versions that kick everyone elses butt ofcourse! :P

Rybka cannot fail to win such a game, with such a position! It just cannot fail to win! Yet it failed! :shock: It definitely something was wrong with Rybka in the last 10 game in my opinion.....

Well done for Zappa! It played good and bad, just like Rybka. Rybka just played more times bad moves....

Here i show an almost forced win for Rybka that didn't manage to find it.
(It begins with 27.Kh2 and has 28.Rg1 and i can't find a refutation for the moment....
The time Rybka plays this Kh2->Rg1 plan, it will be the game i will buy Rybka. I start to decide that i may apply this decision to other programs too.)

Very nice match, showing how far are the top engines from perfection :)
Overall Zappa looked better to me.

After some more analysis of some moves that resisted for black, i'm convinced that 27.Kh2 and then 28.Rg1 wins for white. White just has an unstoppable attack!

I wonder which programs can find these moves.... :?
