Hall of Fame
In 1997 REBEL was challenged to play a match against GM Arthur Yusupov a top-10 chess player
at the time. REBEL won the match with 10½-6½. GM Arthur Yusupov about his computer opponent:
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.
The next year on the island Ischia in Italy Rebel had to face world's second best player
Vishy Anand in a 8 game match. Rebel surprised the whole chess world winning the match
with 5-3 partly due to a new invented software algorithm called "anti-GM".
January 2001, a new challenge for Rebel. In a 6 game match Rebel beats GM John van der Wiel
with 3½-2½. The match was very special as before the match GM John van der Wiel NEVER had lost a
serious game against a computer.
