Jan-27-06  THE pawn: That was one hell of a powerful knight in an endgame.

<RandomVisitor> I can't find the mistakes in your post, where did gandalf make mistakes?

Jan-28-06  RandomVisitor: Each time Rybka makes a comment (such as after moves 15 and 16) it is suggesting a better move - in this case, 15...Qb6 is better than cxd4 (score 0.46 rather than 1.37) and again 16...Qb6 is better than the move played Nxe5 (1.37 vs. 1.81). Otherwise Rybka agrees that the move played in the game was best. Actually, I have set a 0.10 threshold, so that no comment is generated unless a move is found that is 0.10 "better" than the move played.
Jan-29-06  morpstau: That was one hell of a powerful knight in an endgame.
Jan-29-06  THE pawn: <chessgames> --> The user named <morpstau> always repeat other's comments in a copy/paste manner. None of his posts aren't copied/paste and this is getting annoying, is there something to do?
Aug-13-06  spirit: rybka is terrible...these sacs look like magic!
