ICC standard rating record

not suprising, with the new engine Rybka 1.1 achieved a new
rating record on ICC (2843), at about 10th place. With faster
hardware i believe an even higher rating could easily be achieved.
No human GM is capable of achieving such ratings on ICC..

All games played with self made book, own 1.e4! repertoire,
sometimes 1.a3 as suprise, and the Arena chess interface.

The eval of this super engine Rybka clearly is different
from Shredder, which we still use in FICS, so some lines
eg. in the Ruy Lopez are played a bit differently.

As a result next action will be to update our 'best'
variants again on our site www.superchess.com.
And yes, thereafter the goal is to achieve
yet another new rating record..
