{Introduction to GAME 3, written on Hydrachess.com: Game 3 has been started
between the correspondence chess GM Arno Nickel and Hydra. This is the 3rd
game of the series of 4 games agreed between the 2 opponents, last 2 games has
been won by the GM Arno Nickel and this time the Hydra team is more
enthusiastic about the game and hoping to make a win, Hydra project manager
Muhammad Nasir Ali commented on the match, "Correspondence chess is certainly
different from the classical chess and we found it very good to play against a
GM, the last 2 games helped us a lot to learn about the correspondence chess
and with this we are ready to play the next two games and we hope we will
perform better. Though we did much more better then the Arno's predictions
about the Michael Adam's match and we hope Hydra will do its best against him
as well in the coming games."} 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. Nxe5 d6 4. Nf3 Nxe4 5. d4
