It would be the match Rybka - CB, not versus Junior, which is one of its product, I think.
The match it is not the same as the tournament.
What the CB would do ? Will they analyse the Rybka's games to find weak points an prepare the special positions to win. It is probable, cb has many peoples working for it.
Rybka's team could do the same. It is a lot of work to do.
Is it not better to prepare the Rybka who will be playing a bit other way ? The same concerning Junior.
The history of championships matches shows that the winner was that who was able to add somthing to his play.
>It should also be noted that Junior is probably the only engine in existence that has an opening book author who might be able to compete with >Jeroen in terms of specific preparation.
Sandro Necchi of Shredder is also one of the best in the book preparation.....
A Rybka-Junior match is like this:
If 6 games will be played then Junior might be able to draw or even win the match.
If 12 games are played then Junior has very small chances for winning.
If 24 games are played(as Vas cleverly proposed) then Junior has no chance.
Of course all these with the Junior we know, since who knows if Amir and Shay would not create a Junior 11 which will be considerably stronger and reach the level of Rybka or even be better..... Difficult yes, very difficult yes, but not improbable!
>Both sides will be working. It is the problem of time and money. Here CB has the advantage but it is not all.
I don't really understand what money has to do for if only 2 programmers are working for Junior and Vas on Rybka.
What more money would offer as an advantage?
I would understand more money as an advantage if Chessbase would hire 10 other programmers to help Amir and Shay to improve Junior and if they provided them with 50 computers and some other helpers to rapidly test beta versions of Junior.
But it's highly improbable this to happen and i'm not sure you mean this with money.
Also i disagree that Chessbase has an advantage since current situation is that Rybka is a LOT stronger, so obviously Rybka has the advantage....
all things you mentioned are avaiable for money.
The play is going for big market and money.
Is CB designed for fun or for making money? It would be for CB the fight for the market. I would expect hard fight.
Match for someone could be fun for someone race.
In our 'civilized' world money are important, I would say too much.
I hope that Rybka will win the match and it will show that money are not everything.
It will be not a walk as many people think. CB has much to loose.
Every cb copy protected programm cost about 40 euro :-).
I cannot figure out if you are kidding or not...
But one bad moment can't erase all the previous many many good moments.....
Sandro gave to Shredder many many book wins in the past....
Of course. I do not understand why some people say that Rybka is weak in tactics.
Rybka is tremendously strong in tactics, and can play really beauty and brilliant in many occasions, but it simply does not prefers to enter in tactical games, it is not their style. That is very different and it does not mean that it is weak in tactics.
i think that rybkas preference not to initiate tactical slugfests is the key to her strength. Rybka attaches some kind of uncertainty calculation to positions and if there are a lot of pawn pushes to the seventh, hanging pieces and king weaknesses. She avoids them and retains her advantages with other means - she trades of more certainty with a slightly lower score. So what happens is the opponent often goes into a tactical super mess and rybka profits often from the resulting mess. I think this two dimensional eval _(uncertainty and classic evail) leads to better tactical play by rybka... but if some of the tactical messes turn out good (by pure chance) for her opponent everybody laudes his tactical abilites and disses rybkas tactical play. Also the tradeoff between certainty probabilities and eval centipawns is of course a complex topic
make easier the match preparations.
