Another chess legend.

Who has any proof of this statement?

More knowledge better at longer time controls? Take a look at the top of
the SSDF list, sit down a minute, and think again about this legend.

I think that if you have more time to compute, you need LESS knowledge.
We still have to find which kind of knowledge is needed in this case,
and which other can be thrown out happily.
