Hi,
    Looking at a couple of my books `The Pirc in black and white` by James Vigus and `Play the Caro-Kann by Jovanka Houska I see analysis and suggestions being attributed to Rybka and not the usual suspects :)

Regards

I think this is the best advertisement for Rybka :)

Maybe I should start playing the Caro Kann ;)

I have just finished translating into English the Karlsbad 1907 tournament book by Marco and Schlechter; the book will appear shortly. I added a number of my own notes to the book, combining my own efforts with Rybka 2.3.2 to correct and expand a number of the existing annotations and to add new ones.

In my translator's foreword I credit Rybka with assisting in the analysis, the same way an author credits other authors for their contributions. Doing so acknowledges the help that a chess engine provides, and is the proper and ethical way to publish.

I also thank Vas personally for the engine. I would not want to omit this, either.

This sounds quite good, and I'll be looking forward to the book!

Nonetheless, there will still be, for quite some time, this strange notion in the "normal" chess community that Rybka is probably some sort of really expensive analysis tool to which only grandmasters have access, and that it's certainly not available for normal patzers to buy.

And when they all notice they can buy it, then finally Rybka will be left behind by some other newcomer... :)

Honestly, I believe that none of the current engines will ever overtake Rybka. The difference in strength is simply too big. If it's going to happen it will be by some new engine coming out of the blue, just as it was when Rybka popped up.

But even that is not too likely. Look at Rybka: We have a situation which is nearly optimal. A good programmer who is carrying a chess title himself, having good access to the skills of a few other top players - a team which is going to program a Rybka killer can't be much better on the staff side. The only chance would be to have a groundbreaking idea. But who knows when that may happen?
