  • Final standing of the match

    REBEL-Yusupov 10½ - 6½

    After the match Yusupov said the following about his computer opponent:

  • Rebel is a very strong program.

  • In all 17 games Rebel played sensible moves. I never saw Rebel playing one senseless move as I have seen Deep Blue playing some in the recent match against Kasparov.

  • We the Schröder BV want to thank Arthur Yusupov for his kind words about Rebel.

    Moreover a rematch for next year was suggested by our Italian sponsor and both Arthur Yusupov and the Schröder BV accepted the offer!
