You're reading: First official advanced chess match in Ukraine ends in thrilling draw

The match ended in a 40-move draw
after Boytsun, playing white, held the initiative for most of the game that put
Ushenina uncomfortably on the defensive in a sharp position that originated in
the Slavic Defense.

Both players “teamed up” with computer chess
programs to play a high-quality game, virtually blunder-free. No player could
look at their opponent’s computers, however. The idea is to use a chess program
to help evaluate candidate moves during the course of the game, but the human
player ultimately decides which move to make and is always in control.

“Advanced chess is the synthesis of
creative chess play and latest computer technology,” said Kirsan Ilyumzhinov
via video link, president of FIDE, the world’s chess governing body.
