ICGA announcement about Rybka

According to ChessVibes, the International Computer Games Association, organizers of the World Computer Chess Championship, have issued their long-awaited report about Rybka, and have decided to disqualify it and strip it of its victories.

The ChessVibes article includes almost a dozen detailed supporting documents, which it claims were produced by the ICGA as part of its investigations.

I don't really know what to make of all of this, but three facts are indisputable:

  1. Modern chess software is incredibly strong.

  2. Chess software can be an extremely effective training aide

  3. Organizers of chess tournaments are increasingly worried about cheating
