PostPosted: Wed Jun 29, 2011 9:12 pm 
Hi all,

I have checked all through the Internet and can only find this:

http://www.chessvibes.com/reports/rybka ... pionships/

Rybka disqualified and banned from World Computer Chess Championships.

Can anyone confirm this?

How truly sad if it is true.

It certainly seems to be - people I have spoken to have heard it from Levy etc. It's all very worrying, I still don't know how I feel about it all...

I've a feeling we haven't heard the last of this story by a long way yet... :(

I don't think the Crafty guy did something wrong,he was not accused of cheating like Mr Rajlich obviously did, who, bye the way, also cheated on his paying customers. Remember Rybka 3.1! Bad habits never die!

I don't think Bob Hyatt did something wrong either. But whenever the name of Crafty and Hyatt come up, it seldom stays with friendly words.

You might have a look on what the owner of Rybka said himself to this topic:

I have to agree with Rybka's programmer. Every chess program is built on the shoulders of some previous knowledge. It's like no new discovery or idea can function independently, as most of them are built on the accomplishments of someone, or many people in the past. Computers can't work without electricity, plastic, semi-conductors, and apparently Chinese, Korean, Malaysian, and a number of other third-world countries, who provide labor, and an unregulated marketplace, where huge companies can go and pollute, pay employees so little they often want to off themselves, oh wait, I'm ranting. Sorry!

In any case, people often take pot-shots at the folks on top. The guy put in a ton of work, refining old and public ideas.

What I'm wondering is, since Houdini has come out right when Rybka seems to be getting a bad rap--is this a "rebranding" campaign? Did Rybka become Houdini? By the way, the naming might be a little spot-on--a magician? Hey, don't magicians make things disappear (rybka) and reappear? (houdini) Oh well, I don't really care. But it was nice they made the regular version handle 6 cores. It's about time they all started doing that, and maybe figuring out how to use all the 6 piece table-bases without the computer choking.
