The "official launching article" by did mentioned about the Rybka team. Among the members is Iweta Rajlich photo right - the wife of IMVasikRajlich -the author of Rybka. Iweta

Mas,Hafizulhelmi (2386) - Rajlich,Iweta (2417) [B06]
First Saturday 2008 july GM Budapest (Round 2), 06.07.2008

1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 d6 4.Be3 Nc6 5.d5 Ne5 ?! Fritz opening book gave 5...Nb8 as the main line . The knight will probably be relocated back with Nbd7 later. The text move is quite weak in my opinion because it encourage white to play 6.f4
IM Iweta Rajlich (right) pondering her move against IM Mas (left) strong 6.f4
6...Nd7 7.Nf3 Ngf6 8.Bc4 0–0 9.Qe2 c6 10.0–0 b5
IM Mashafizul (left) on his way to play 11.dxc6! against IM Iweta Rajlich
11.dxc6! bxc4 12.cxd7 Bb7 13.Qxc4 Qxd7 14.Qd3 Nh5 15.e5 Qc6 16.exd6 exd6 17.Rf2 Rfe8 18.f5 Nf6 19.Nd4 Qa6 20.Qxa6 Bxa6 21.Bg5 Ng4 22.Rf4 Ne3 23.f6 h6 24.Bh4 Bf8 25.Bf2 Bb7 26.Bxe3 Rxe3 27.Kf2 Rae8 28.h4 h5 29.Nb3 R3e6 30.Nd4 Re3 31.Nb3 Bh6 32.Rb4 Ba8 33.Rf1 R3e5 34.Kg3 Kh7 35.Ra4 g5 36.Rxa7 gxh4+ 37.Kh2 Kg6 38.Nd4 Be3 39.Ra4 h3 40.Kxh3 Kh6? a serious ,mistake by Iweta that cost her the game ( 40...Bxd4 41.Rxd4 Rb8 42.Nd1 Re2 would offer good counterplay for black)
