I know that Fritz has problems to see zugzwangs because of it's null move

The fact that Fritz is better than all or almost all of the other programs is
because of good ideas that are not used by other people but it does not mean
that every idea that is suggeted by other people is not good for Fritz.

I do not think that Fritz's author is in another universe.
I think that you overestimnate him.

I know that something that I suggested in the past was slightly productive for
tiger and tiger is at similiar level to Fritz.
