|Apr-07-11|| ||BishopBerkeley: <HeMateMe> Thank you for your kind words! I hope you have been in good spirits.|
Alas, I don't have quite as much time as I used to to participate in this fine site, but I do hope to stop by when I can! There are so many excellent contributors here.

|Apr-14-11|| ||crazybird: Rybka's new build (4.1) kicking Houdini (1.5a) at TCES S2 Elite match. Leading 5-3 and having a winning position in the ongoing game.|
|Apr-14-11|| ||kia0708: what is TCES S2 ?
<Rybka's new build (4.1) kicking Houdini (1.5a)
at TCES S2 Elite match>
|Apr-14-11|| ||myschkin: . . .
".. TCEC is not an "official" computer world championship event, it is just a private event made available for everyone to watch."
|Apr-17-11|| ||vonKrolock: <Rybka> was winning the match with a 3 points margin, then <Houdini> won three games and the match runs with the score evened after 22 games ... Live the 23th at http://www.tcec-chess.org/tcec_em.php|
|Apr-17-11|| ||Xeroxx: This player is a computer cheater.|
|Apr-17-11|| ||maxi: Care has to be taken in these computer events that they don't get a chance to consult a human.|
|Apr-17-11|| ||vonKrolock: <Houdini> won the 23th game with black and now is leading with +1 - explanations!? <Rybka>, presumably, is not "tired" like Korchnoi vs Spassky in there 1977/78 candidates final...|
|Apr-18-11|| ||Reggaalex: <Houdini 1.5a> is stronger and so I use <Rybka Aquarium 4> <<only with <Houdini>>> for analyses ^^. <The Rocket: "it's a tactical monster">. Long live Open Source.|
|Apr-18-11|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: Anyone know when we might expect the Rybka-Houdini games on here?|
|Apr-18-11|| ||vonKrolock: <Reggalex> Sure, even so the -3 start is puzzling.|
<Wyatt Gwyon> When someone submit a game and cg.com staff aprove it.
... But is this not the ultimate clash between free (amateur !?) information and the 'pro' (official, protected) concept? ?!
|Apr-18-11|| ||Reggaalex: <vonKrolock> I agree, it's more than mysterious, but things have changed and Houdini is leading...till now. I think that this is the ultimate clash and it shows that free sciences are often more than expensive ones.|
|Apr-29-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...
Amateur beats Rybka 4.0 - - - BLINDFOLDED!!!
|Apr-29-11|| ||Colonel Mortimer: <LIFE Master AJ: http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...
Amateur beats Rybka 4.0 - - - BLINDFOLDED!!!>|
Yeah - it's a hoax (just in case you needed that pointed out)
|Apr-29-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Actually - that was just a jab. (See my forum - I posted there first - for how I described this incident.) |
I would no sooner believe that this chump could beat Rybka blindfolded ... you might as well tell me that all the individuals (on my ignore list) had banded together and bought me a Birthday present.
Or the sun went Super-Nova.
And if I continue - in this vein - then I should really move it to Odd Lie page.
|Apr-29-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: On a serious note - can anyone here tell me how he managed such a feat??? |
Sure - he cheated. (That goes without saying.) But how?
I am - if nothing else - eternally curious. AND ... I know for certain that the "engine-heads" (no offense) are VERY smart guys ... if anyone can figure this mystery out ... they can!
|Apr-29-11|| ||anandrulez: 20,000 books - Pi to a million digits . Sure! Boy gimme a break . Just because we are readers doesn't men you can sell anything !|
|Apr-29-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: But ... ... ... and here is the million-dollar-question ... |
IF he really did defeat Rybka, then how did he manage it? (Or was it some form of elaborate hoax?)
I remember a similar "PSYCHIC" trick. Something about spending a long amount of time inside a frozen block of ice. Some darn fool tried the exact same thing ... and died after only a few days.
Those things are NEVER for real.
|Apr-29-11|| ||polarmis: <LIFE Master AJ: On a serious note - can anyone here tell me how he managed such a feat???>|
A chess player who was watching noted he mixed up b & d when calling out moves, so it sounded as though he was listening to the moves and misheard. A funny detail is that on move 13 he said he'd calculated everything to around move 30...
On the Pi digits & books - of course it's also nonsense, but ChessBase's analysis is flawed. He claims to be able to memorise a book in 15 minutes, not a whole day. And he never recited all the digits but would just be asked, e.g. for the 2,000,001st :) Presumably he'd claim to be able to memorise pages of digits in a second or two...
|Apr-29-11|| ||Jim Bartle: i'm totally convinced it's real. Who needs to see, you know, the moves of the game or anything like that?|
|Apr-29-11|| ||Jim Bartle: Whoops, here are the alleged games: http://rybkaforum.net/cgi-bin/rybka...|
|Apr-29-11|| ||alexmagnus: The official world record in Pi memorization is 50 000 digits; the inofficial, but a widely recognized one is 100 000.|

|Jun-09-11|| ||DrMAL: I used to regularly wail on Northwestern University's chess program in 1979 (yes I am a geezer) then the computer WC until 1980. Its rating was supposedly around 2080 on its big CDC Cyber mainframe but its play often resembled a chimp more than a champ.|
I drew Rybka 4.1 once, so what if it was during a power outage?
|Jun-09-11|| ||PinnedPiece: <Slyusarchuck v Rybka>|
I submit the doctor could not have done it without the blindfold, which would have been an excellent cover for an earpiece or....?
Nevertheless, this trick is so impressive that I am going to change out my avatar for this one, before someone else grabs it:
