Chess computer weakness: Blocked positions and 50 move rule.[edit]

It would seem appropriate to say something about block positions. All chess computers are susceptible to losing against humans in blocked positions as Hikaru Nakamura shows in this game against the top rated computer Rybka. SunCreator (talk) 20:30, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

That was Rybka 2. What computer was it? Has Hikaru Nakamura played Rybka 3 on a Quad computer? Mschribr (talk) 22:21, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
It is my understanding that Rybka was withdrawn from playing against humans that use such anti-computer tactics/strategies. Regards, SunCreator (talk) 00:23, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
Why has Nakamura or anyone else not played Rybka 3 on a Quad computer in public in the last 2 years? Because they have no chance. Rybka was handicapped when playing GM. Even puny cells phone can beat a GM. Mschribr (talk) 03:20, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
Firstly the above game was within the last two years and played on the public Internet Chess Club servers. And secndly as I said above, my understanding is that Rybka was withdrawn from such encounters. Imagine the negative publicity if the computer losses. Note the above game was played with a computer friendly 3 minute time control. It's not the only game either, here against Crafty a similiar bloackade technique was employed. Regards, SunCreator (talk) 04:24, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
In the game between Nakamura and rybka we don’t know who was running the rybka? What settings were used on rybka? What computer was used? Was it a Pentium 1? All these things could make a difference of 100s of points. A public game means all this information is known. When I said 2 years, I meant a recent rybka running on a recent computer. We do not know this for the Nakamura rybka game. We know this was blitz and usual for a top computer to lose a blitz game in 2008. We know in 1994 Kasparov lost to Fritz 3 in Munich in a blitz tournament. Therefore, for a top program on a top computer to lose a blitz game to any human in 2008 is unusual. There must have been a problem with the computer or the program not set properly. Crafty is an important program for programmers to learn and definitely not 1 of the top programs. Crafty is 500 points less than rybka on the ssdf rating list. Show me a public game with 1 of the top 10 programs on quad computer in the last 2 years. Mschribr (talk) 18:18, 8 March 2010 (UTC)


Technically, shouldn't this article be moved to Human–computer chess matches, the en dash indicating an "X vs. Y" sense, as opposed to, for example, an "X-Y hybrid" sense? - dcljr (talk) 20:55, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

More info[edit]

Interested parties should check out [1] (an archived version of [2], part of the larger collection [3]) for additional information on this topic. It's a personal webpage—no citations unfortunately—but it might give some ideas of what else could be said about computers playing chess against humans. - dcljr (talk) 21:03, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

Oh, and of course there's always Computer chess. [g] - dcljr (talk) 21:06, 11 May 2011 (UTC)
