I spent $100 buying Rybka, the chess program, two weeks ago. The computers at work have been enjoying their weekends analyzing positions for me. But, I realized that other people have had my idea too. In particular, John L Jerz uses Rybka to analyze one of the sharpest variations in chess, the Traxler variation. Another player Maarten de Zeeuw wrote a survey of the variation and it was voted the best from the past 25 volumes of the New In Chess Yearbook Series. (!) de Zeeuw claims White has many ways to get a clear advantage, but Jerz finds better moves for Black.
