I think it would be a nice exhibit for Steve's collection. Not sure Steve will agree and so will run and hide now :wink:

The Atlantic slave trade has now been revived in the 21st century, albeit limited to the denizens of computer chess. I implore the master of Rolf to treat him with as much dignity as one would bestow upon a herd animal.

Having just returned from his job in Peru scrubbing Van Der Sloot's prison cell latrine, Rolf has acquired some domestic skills that will be quite useful to his new master.

Unfortunately, Rolf doesn't know how to operate any chess engine other than Rybka 3, and so will not be able to run chess engine tournaments for his master with any engines other than Rybka 3.

Slavery may be illegal in your country; therefore, you may wish to consult an attorney before consummating this transaction.

The best Rolf can do,the way I see it,is to move the pieces for Steve when playing against defective dedicated chess units and announce the moves eventually if the sound system is dead....as an extra he can whistle a short peep when Steve's king is checked :lol:
