Hello Achim!

Rybka is a UCI chess engine programmed by International Master Vasik Rajlich
. What chess has to do with backgammon? This strikes me as an excuse not to participate. Gnu must overcome the trauma caused by the successive wins of bgblitz. Gnu needs to give itself another chance.

I took part in 2002 and 2003 and it was as Mssimiliano said. We agreed
on a certain format and just started with two notebooks.

Actually I'm guilty having sent an e-mail to Frank regarding the
Computer Olympiade in Tilburg. It's only 2h away by car so I thought
it might be fun to play again. But after the case »Rybka« and the way
the ICGA handled it I decided not to participate.

Anyhow, four different bg programs should be great fun so feel free to join!
