ok, so benjamin got his ass handed to him on a silver platter.  but since this is only 1 match, to draw definitive conclusions on it would be ill-advised.  how about trying something like the following?:

time controls: 90 min + 30 sec
fritz 7 (or whatever program running on a fast, single-core CPU that has an approx. strength of ~2650).
~10-15 move deep opening book (made by whomever), w/ an emphasis on super drawish lines.
and set contempt to be low for fritz (so that it seeks draws).

fritz gets white every game, of course.  rybka on a quadcore.  i dont think joel did a good job w/ his opening preparation.  plus he may also be a tad too weak to win such a setup.

How about a scoring system as follows:

Rybka wins: Rybka scores 0.7 the GM 0
Draw: Rybka scores 0.4 the GM 0.6
GM wins: GM scores 1.3 Rybka 0

Just a thought - something like this might be more interesting.

Draw odds games are fun, although they can slightly change the chess dynamics. Moreover, it was a bit weird to see GM always with white, and rybka always with black. I would like something like this

When GM plays white and rybka plays black

if white wins: GM +1, rybka 0
if draw: GM +0,5 rybka 0
if black wins: GM 0, rybka +1

When GM plays black and rybka white

if white wins: rybka +0,5, GM 0
if draw: rybka 0, GM +1
if black wins: rybka 0, GM +2

As for the match, I am pretty proud I exactly predicted the result. Still, beyond the score, the rybka performance has not been amazing for me. The book did not seem very sharp: too many pawns and pawns structures during the game; in game4 rybka really went crap.

I would also like to see a draw odds match for: top GM vs top freestylers team... ok, quite impossible.
