Vas,

Can you please reveal why you chose to name your engine 'Rybka'?
Parent - - By Chess Solver (**) [pk] Date 2008-11-09 16:34
Because Iweta's love name is Rybka.

I think that's why she used the nick Rybusia in the last freestyle tourny

love name? She's called little fish, are you serious?
Parent - - By Chess Solver (**) [pk] Date 2008-11-09 17:27
Yeah  i am very sure about that one

sweet. people call each other 'dumpling' and stuff so I guess little fish isn't too bad

Did you give that quote as a joke, or was it actually said somewhere?  Googling doesn't find it...
Parent - - By billyraybar (***) [us] Date 2008-11-10 02:39
Turbo,

It was only a joke.

Please use smilies (:)) with the jokes.

When I saw it in that thread, my first thought was:
maybe because his secret weapon (in chess) is like little fish :-)

Now that you mention it, iweta does look like a little fish.:)

no Rybka 4 for you...
Parent - - By Hetman (*****) Date 2008-11-10 17:42
Fishes are not speaking but swimming. Rybka is playing not talking. :-)
Parent - - By Pia (****) [ru] Date 2008-11-11 16:32
He must be wanted to say someone to shut up, don't talk, just play chess and shut up... :)
Parent - - By Felix Kling (Gold) [de] Date 2008-11-14 15:38
well, actually Vas is talking quite much during play (I mean blitz games for fun), so that's unlikely :)
Parent - - By Pia (****) [ru] Date 2008-11-14 16:56
Hm, I don't like talking or comments during play.
But I mean talking in real live. I've spoken too much which I'm not proud of. So, Rybka is a good style.
Parent - - By Kappatoo (*****) [de] Date 2008-11-14 17:02
So when you meet with a friend to play some blitz games, you don't talk at all during the games?
Parent - - By Pia (****) [ru] Date 2008-11-14 17:12
I try not to talk. I'm always having trouble to concentrate on a game. I have little practice, though.
Parent - - By Felix Kling (Gold) [de] Date 2008-11-15 00:03
concentration is not important. fun is what you want :) Talking during blitz is part of the game
Parent - - By Pia (****) [ru] Date 2008-11-15 00:14
I want fun from the game. Like thinking, winning...
Parent - - By Felix Kling (Gold) [de] Date 2008-11-15 11:12
a complete win is verbally and on the board :)
Parent - By Pia (****) [ru] Date 2008-11-15 14:49
BS. I don't wanna "talk down" friends while playing.
Parent - By Banned for Life (Gold) Date 2008-11-14 04:08
I thought the reason was that Vas drinks like a fish? :-D
