Vasik Rajlich Speaks!

I want to give a really big thanks to Ed Schroder, Soren Riis, Chris Whittington, Nelson Hernandez, Nick Carlin, Jeroen Noomen and Alan Sassler for their superb efforts in defending me against the accusations that I have broken ICGA tournament rules. Soren did a great job detailing the shenanigans pulled during the ICGA's investigation, from stacking the jury to premature public accusations to a comprehensive fabrication of evidence.

I also appreciate the tenacity of Chris Whittington and especially Ed Schroder in digging through the mountains of documents and answering them point by point.

Finally, I greatly appreciate the support that I have received from countless others. This support has been touching and uplifting and I really appreciate it. Thanks guys!

In other news, I'm working on Rybka. Rybka 5 will be ready sometime this year and the remote Rybka renting will be launched sometime after that. We'll make announcements on our web site and in our forum when we have more information. It should be a fun year.

Best wishes to everyone for a great 2012!

Vas

Hi group,

Same as always, Vas offers nothing of significance to defend himself. Only innuendo backed up with nothing.

Cordially,

Sean

Hi Ed,

I only have one question for Vas.
- Give the source code of Rybka 1.0 beta to Ed Shroder so he can 'totally independent' see how much fruit/crafty code he has used.
I can bet 1000 € that he want do it and i already knows his answer.
He didn't has the source code anymore.....blablabla...and so on

Best
Johan

"Superb efforts"? LOL
This guy is nuts. A pretty proven liar about R1.0, he instead of limiting the damage makes a joke out of his character and his work generally. It was pretty easy for him to take ICGA pompous dinosaurs to court, if banned for Rybka 4 or 5, but with this "moral" stance of him he surely won't and can't.

Anyway, a funny argument between a caught cheater and a private, pathetic organization from 1970es.
