Match GM Vadim Milov - Rybka 3

We have a schedule for the World #28 GM Vadim Milov (ELO 2705) vs. Rybka-3 match. The plan is to play the first two games on Sunday, Sept. 14, the next two on Sept. 15, one game on Sept 16, two games on Sept. 17, and the final game on Sept. 18. As for the order of the games, it’s not set in stone, but probably we’ll try to make it so that no two consecutive games will be played with the same initial conditions. As previously announced, two games are normal chess with just White advantage for Milov, two are pawn and move (f7), and four are rook for knight (a1 and b8 removed).
Here are the details: Sunday and Monday, games at 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Eastern daylight time (4 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. CET); Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday games at 10:30 a.m. (4:30 p.m. CET), with an evening game Wednesday only at 5 p.m. (11 p.m. CET). The order of the games will be: standard game, Exchange odds, standard game, Exchange odds, pawn and move, Exchange odds, pawn and move, Exchange odds.
The match will be broadcasted by one of the Rybka’s co-authors Larry Kaufman on both ChessOK Playing Zone and this website.
