Rybka: $100,000 challenge to FIDE
The author of Rybka - undoubtly the strongest chess engine (Rybka 2.3.1), Vasik Rajlich challenges FIDE for a $100,000 match between Rybka and the winner of the "Ultimate Computer Chess Challenge 2007" between Deep Junior and Deep Fritz, that just started (first game drawn) :
Also the match offer to grandmasters is more and more interesting :
I doubt Chessbase or FIDE would accept to organize & play such a match, even if Fritz 11 or 12 can beat the next Rybka... The war of engines is not on the chessboard nowadays but that's quite interesting to follow anyway :)

Thanks for that link Thibault, a very interesting offer. I hope it goes ahead. I think all 2700 players would win, 2600's maybe even. But it is of course very difficult to predict. If only i was a grandmaster...

Rybka's GM challenger will be Ehlvest (again); in an earlier match, Ehlvest (Elo 2643) received Pawn odds and lost.
