I have no idea... Maybe this is a new strategy to avoid opening
by the opponent? If the opponent sees Hydra, he might think 'never heard
of, let's play normal openings'. So Chrilly is very cleverly avoiding

But I fear Chrilly's brainchild is punishing him for changing names,
everyone expected more than 0,5 out of three....
