Re: Rybka online........ A HORRIBLE idea!!!!!

I just now found out, to my astonishment, that this is about to be implemented, and at great costs for usage (maybe even 750 euro per year). It will GREATLY ruin my interest in Rybka 4, and greatly ruin the whole hobby. I can think of many terrible things this will cause. I really hope it will be c...

Re: SWISSTEST: 1.Rybka- 2.RobboLito- 3.Stockfish

Re: How deep does a human think when playing chess?

6 plies is ridiculous. Dvoretsky says there are different kinds of positions in terms of calculation. One is the "bush" where you have to calculate multiple alternatives on every move. There is a "tree" where you have forced line and branching on some critical positions, then again a forced line and...

Re: morality and legality of dowloading robbolito

He said he was an expert on Rybka 1. Let me remind you: Rybka 1 is not a commercial program. OK? We have already 2009 and Rybka 3 or already 4.
