Abstract

The Internet Chess Club held its 11th Computer Chess Tournament, January 26–27, 2009. Five rounds were played on the first day and four on the second. The time control was the same as it had been previously: all moves in 50 minutes plus three seconds extra per move. Rybka, the two-time world champion, returned to see if she could do better than tie for first place as she had done in the previous year’s tournament. Thirty-two other entries would try to take a shot at her. However, some of her strongest rivals were missing including, in particular, Junior, Zappa, and Shredder.
