It was a historical day in Moscow, when a 6-game blitz match between the contender to the Robot World Champion title, KUKA Monster and top Grandmaster Alexander Grischuk (2761 ELO) took place in Moscow. In the first 3 games Alexander was white, and although he had the initiative, he could not beat his metallic opponent. Actually in the third game, he barely managed to draw a Rook endgame with a pawn down. But in the 3 last games where KUKA Monster had white, Alexander was not given any chance, and the robot beat him 3-0. Bottom line, a clear win 4.5-1.5 for KUKA Monster.
