|Jun-10-10|| ||outsider: i wonder if these silicons could get rated so that we have some comparison. quite a few non-human type moves as well|
|Jun-10-10|| ||supertimchan: I think they are about 3200 FIDE.|
|Jun-11-10|| ||dumbgai: Strange opening by Rybka.|
|Jun-11-10|| ||zluria: It certainly looks strange, but humans have been known to play it. See for example Carlsen vs Leko, 2009.|
|Jun-11-10|| ||newton296: look at that !! deep sjeng goes undeafeated 5-0 with a win over rybka !!|
|Jun-11-10|| ||computer chess guy: I think 38. ♖xc5 was inferior to 38. ♗xc5, but Rybka has always been more than willing to sac the exchange.|
|Jun-11-10|| ||Whitehat1963: So, call me blind, but what's the finish?|

The operator probably decided to resign because the evaluation was too unfavorable. Various moves leave black with a large advantage.
|Jun-11-10|| ||jhoro: i'm guessing rybka was really low on time when it played 38.Rxc5. firebird finds instantly that 38.Bxc5 is better by close to a full point.|
|Jun-13-10|| ||kingsindian2006: If rybka can lose games than more people should consider this when calling gm's names for not following rybka lines in a chess game.|
|Jun-13-10|| ||laskersteinitz: Well said!|

Strange, so does my Rybka 3.

People should not call GMs names for not following any engine - not just Rybka.
|Dec-21-10|| ||Domdaniel: Rybka's blunder was seemingly some kind of communication glitch in the huge stack of cores being used -- no normal Rybka makes the same mistake.|
Rybka still won the event, winning all of its other games. Sjeng finished a point behind, having conceded a few draws to lesser programs.
I've seen a pic of the Rybka core stack, and the problem is easy to spot. On the wall behind, instead of a giant fan or a multi-core coolant spray, there's a *radiator*.
|Dec-21-10|| ||Domdaniel: But if this helps to shatter some illusions about the 'perfect' play of the super-engines -- or the total meaninglessness of a 3200 rating in human terms -- then so much the better.|
