Accoona is hosting another fine chess event in the US. This
time they are bringing current FIDE KO champion Rustam Kasimdzhanov to the
US to face Accoona's Al Toolbar chess program. This exciting man vs.
silicon beast match will take place on June 21st at Time Square in New York
It's great to see Accoona promoting the game of chess in the
United States and especially promoting the game in New York City. It's great
to see some of the international stars coming to the United States to play
chess. Accoona recently launched its innovated search engine and has used
chess as a tool to help market it.
Rustam Kasimdzhanov burst on to the scene
back in August of 2004, when he won the Libya KO in smashing style. He
defeated all the top seeds to take the KO championship. Recently, Rustam
rating has soured, he jumped 25 rating spots. However, Kasimdzhanov
had a tough Linares and finished tied for last place in a very tough field
consisting of Kasparov, Anand, Leko, Topalov, Adams and Vallejo Pons. This
man vs. machine match could be just what Rustam needs to jump start his
career. He will have a difficult task, these silicon beasts are unforgiving
and tough to beat. What makes this match especially difficult is that Al
Toolbar is an unknown quantity. Back in 1997, Garry Kasparov got ambushed by
an unknown called Deeper Blue. But Rustam knows what these fined tuned
silicon beasts can do. One thing is certain, Al Toolbar better have all its
transistors lined up, if it wants to defeat the FIDE KO champion. Stay tuned
for Hangin the Greeks keys to victory.
