May-30-06  whatthefat: A powerful game from Rybka. Will we see a Topalov-esque comeback from here?
Aug-23-06  spirit: crafty's craft didn't save this time...
Aug-24-06  slomarko: i play against crafty but it usualy beats me.
Aug-24-06  spirit: welcome to the club

Aug-26-06  spirit: really...whats crafty's can i purchase it?
Aug-26-06  slomarko: crafty is free. google it.
Apr-14-07  sanyas: It's amazing... Rybka actually understands positional chess...
Jul-19-08  sharpnova: you can configure any UCI engine to move as fast as you want. set rybka to depth 10 and it will move instantly and still demolish crafty at most time controls.
Jan-27-09  Kinghunt: Rybka played extremely strongly. You have to love its white squared bishop and its total domination of the board.
Jan-21-11  Civhai: What was the point of Craftys 42 Bxg5? Isn't that just a blunder?
