Shredder wins against top grandmaster

Chess ClassicDeep Shredder 10 UCI has won both games in a match against the world class chess player Teimour Radjabov from Azerbaijan at the Chess Classic in Mainz. The 19 year old is considered to be one of the greatest chess talents ever and is currently leading the junior world ranking list. Shredder was running on a 1.63 GHz notebook from Livingston. It seems that it is very hard for human top players to compete with Shredder even on such moderate hardware.
