No problem. I posted this game along with some others some time ago already
as part of a report of one of my tournaments (freeware vs. commercial programs),
but here it is again:

[Event "Computer chess game"]
[Date "1998.10.17"]
[Round "1"]
[White "REBEL 8.0"]
[Black "MChess Pro 5.0"]
[Result "1-0"]
[TimeControl "600"]

1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. e5 c5 5. a3 Bxc3+ 6. bxc3 Ne7 7. Bd3 Nbc6
8. Qg4 c4 9. Be2 O-O 10. h4 f5 11. Qg3 Qa5 12. Bd2 Qa4 13. Bd1 Qb5 14.
Bh6 Ng6 15. h5 f4 16. Qg4 Qb2 17. hxg6 Qxc3+ 18. Kf1 gxh6 19. Rxh6 Qxa1
20. Rxh7 Rf5 21. Nh3 Ne7 22. Rxe7 f3 23. Kg1 Qxd1+ 24. Kh2 Qf1 25. gxf3
Bd7 26. Qh4 { 00:04  7.00  Matt in 6 Züge  Dg4-h4 Df1xh3+ Dh4xh3 Kg8-f8
Dh3-h4 Tf5-h5  } 1-0

For the non-german readers: the comment in the last line says "Mate in 6 moves",
it's a comment of Rebel and this was the first move in this game, that was
calculated by Rebel. MChess resigned at this point.
