Go up one level in this thread

I left CCC for a few months(6) and came back finding Vasik finally released his
first beta after many many years of chess programming.

Great fun from the appereance of Rybka! Time to clone-guess and to test one's
Sherlock-Home skill in unravelling the mystery "Why is Rybka so strong"

I can never understand Daniel's post and the details even if I wanted to - meant
for the top 1% of chess programmers. My raw take is that it is a clone.

Definitely a clone - how else can a program reach 2800 as a first release. From
all his CCC posts through the years, the truely discernimg experts (not
necessarily you) among us know he could not come out with anything original or
creative and he often mistake fail soft with hard,etc...etc.. ask him a basic
question about recursive null-move and he would have himself exposed as a fraud
and then you don't need to search too much of a proof. Just search the archives
for all his silly postings! Do you then need any proof.

Still getting solid evidence is great fun.
Hope someone can prove how sharp my instinct is.

No special regards for anyone or ill-will.
