From June 2 till June 5, 1997 REBEL in Italy on the island Ischia played 17 chess games against world TOP 20 player Arthur Yusupov at that time listed as no. 12.

To challenge such a strong chess player was an experiment, no commercial chess company had done so before, Rebel Company step into the footsteps of IBM, famous from the 2 DEEP BLUE vs Garry Kasparov matches in 1996 and 1997.

The experiment became successful, REBEL won with 10.5-6.5 After the match GM Arthur Yussupov said the following about his computer opponent:

  • REBEL is a very strong program.


  • 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 Garry Kasparov.


  • We, Rebel Company, want to thank Arthur Yusupov for his kind words about REBEL.
