I can only say what happened in the game with Baron.
Hans Secelle, the book author was operating Ant and he was checking this line of
the book constantly, especially because Baron was showing a very high positional
score that made me worry of a bug.

I don't think there is much wrong with the book line, although it would not be
my preferred choice. The problem was that Ant didn't know how to play it after
the book moves were over. The move b7-b5 (instead of e.g. h7-h6 or h7-h5) was a
complete disaster for Ant.

After the game Hans discovered that the book they were using was in fact an old
book, instead of the book he prepared for the tournament. Against Celes they
played with the new book, but because of my game with Tao (which was lost in the
most unfortunate way I can imagine) I didn't pay much attention to that game.

Richard.
