Default Rybka leading Ehlvest 3 -0 at Pawn odds

The time control is 45 minutes + 10 sec/per move.

The link is *www.rybkachess.com


It was quite a good match from the spectators point of view.

The game length was about ideal from the spectators point of view, but
the human
player needs more time, probably by increasing the increment.

Since time doesn't mean the same thing to a computer and to a human
player,
there would probably be little harm in having an asymmetrical time
control, say

20 minutes + 5 seconds per move for Rybka
45 minutes + 20 seconds per move for the human

That would keep the game length about the same for the benefit of the
spectators,
give the human player more time so time pressure doesn't spoil the
game at the end,
while giving the computer plenty enough time to do its thing.

Another very nice thing for the spectators about this match was being
able
to listen to Vas and Larry kibitz. Vasik has a great sense of
humor :-)

Indeed. I'd much rather see a match of standard chess played at an
asymmetric time control than a match of odds chess with a symmetric
time control.


Depends on the hardware.
Recently, Dutch GM Erwin l'Ami (elo 2595) played 2 games vs. Zappa
Reykjavik.
http://www.chessevents.nl/ami_match.shtml

The GM had classical time control, but the engine had only 30 min (plus
'permanent brain' off).
That could be about right:::: engine don't tend to change their 'minds' very
often with more time at hand, plus an extra ply would cost them too much
time anyway.
