Uri, you know just as well as we do that one game doesn't prove anything.
So what exactly is the point of this? You've not managed to address the
point Vincent is arguing at all.

And worse, e4 c6 d4 d6 transposes to an opening that _is_ in Deep Sjengs
book. Consequently, it can't be a) a bad opening b) good to throw Sjeng out
of book.

So actually you've managed to illustrate the opposite of what you were
trying to argue.
