I agree! Milov shows us (in the odds games), chess is a "slow" game. Don´t change pieces and wait and after some time make your strategy, where you want to attack. Don´t hurry. And always look what Rybka does (and misplaces her pieces :-)). First and most important issue: Stop all counterplay from Rybka. Second: You must be absolutely sure that your attack (when opening the game) is overwhelming. If you are not absolutely sure, stop and regroup. You have time!

It´s a pity, you have to be a very good chess player to succeed with this strategy against Rybka on octal! :-(

Completely agree.

Awesome performance by Sir Milov. Human spirit is still alive.

Many congratulations for him and Larry for organizing this great match.

Br,

Update please! Milov won the 7th game too and is leading 4-3 now. However the last game today ends, congratulations to Milov. This was a great performance against the "unbeatable" monster.

Were the normal games with or without time handicaps?

All games were played at FIDE time controls (90'+30").

OK, so both sides had 90'+30" and Milov drew Rybka at full strength.

Drew one standard game, lost the other one.
