    This is the position right?

    I am considering sacrifices, and want to make sure I don't miss anything.

    Unfortunately, this has become tactical enough that the engine may start showing its prowess. Or maybe Splittet's INTJness.

    EDIT: Damn! I think I had better.

    Well, the position is drawn and I'm offering a draw, you deserve it. I probably still have small chances, but basically you have to blunder. Really good game ygolo, you have just drawn Rybka, which is stronger than even Garry Kasparov ever was.

    OMG. Are you serious? I am really surprised that the engine is supposed to be that good, its even better than ChessMaster and Fritz, it sounds like. I usually loose to those. I have only beaten Fritz once and ChessMaster a couple of times (interestingly all times with some version of the attack I am playing now--and never to be repeated).

    Now that I have that compliment quoted , I am afraid I will refuse the draw to play it out.

    When learning, the advice given is to always play it out, so that you can see why the position is won, lost or drawn.

    So if you don't mind, I would like to continue. But I just realized that you probably need sleep, huh?

    Well. It's dinner time for me anyway. So the next move won't come from me for a while.

    Yeah, I need to sleep (it's 3 AM here), but we can play the game through tomorrow. Rybka is much better than ChessMaster and Fritz. The opening you chose is indeed very anti-computer. The computer simply underestimates the attack of white, which gives white easy play, while finding the correct moves for black is difficult. The great activity of white makes it impossible for black to make progress.
