British GM Michael Adams lost the final game of his match against the super-computer Hydra. In six games the world's number seven managed just one draw, to take just US $10,000 of the $145,000 total prize sum. It was a humbling defeat for the human player. Britain's top grandmaster and the world's number seven player Michael Adams was devastated by Hydra. Adams was slowly strangled by the 32-processor chess machine, located in Abu Dhabi.
The chess machine Hydra, which runs on 32 processors, each enhanced by special FPGA chess hardware, can calculate 200 million moves per second. The match between this monster machine and British GM Michael Adams took place at the Wembley Centre in London from 21-27 June, 2005. The purse was $150,000, paid out on a per-game basis: the winner of each game gets $25,000, in case of a draw both opponents get $10,000 each, and whenever Adams loses a game he gets nothing.
