The 10th Aegon Man-Machine tournament took place from April 26 to 28, and May 1 to 3, 1995, at Aegon Headquarters in The Hague, Netherlands. After five rounds, Hiarcs had 100% so far even winning from Yasser Seirawan, but lost the final round from John van der Wiel, who then scored 5½ out of 6 and won the tournament. MChess Pro won versus Larry Christiansen, Roberto Cifuentes and Zsuzsa Polgar, to make Marty Hirsch and by his German distributor a bit euphoric [1] .

Final Standing

Man vs Computer: 132 - 155 [2]
