Are you joking ? This is happening all the time nowadays. I didn't
count, but I think the most numbers of computer wins over GM's at full
time come from Aegon. There's also Rebel-Yusupov, and I think I remember
at least one time with Fritz  (Glek ?). My own contribution is Gofshtein
(1994) and Kossashvili (1996). There are only several GM-computer games
played each year, but the computers have decent percentages, which is
not surprising since they are playing at the strong-IM/GM level

Matches ? There weren't any. OK, there was Rebel-Yusupov, and
Junior-J.Polgar (which I lost). These things don't happen because
there's no money. The truth is that there was only one company that
would put up a million dollars to drag the world champion to its back
yard, and even it lost interest now. I know from experience that even a
few thousand dollars is next to impossible to get. We are trying to
organize a Polgar rematch without success for two years, and there are
plans to organize a Junior-Alterman match which proceed smoothly until
money is discussed.

Most GM wins at non-blitz ? I have eight: Gofshtein, Bikhovsky, Har-Zvi
(twice), Liss, Finkel, J.Polgar, Kossashvili, plus a few draws including
