Though i usually do not answer clowns too much here, i am sure that
the white winning chances after

 1.e4,c6 2.d4,d6 are quite a bit bigger than after 1.h3 :)

Of course a clown like you will now go argue with things like 'proof it'.

But please show up at the world champs. I will be delighted to play against 1.h3
and i will be delighted to play with white 1.e4,c6 2.d4,d6 if that's offered to

However i am very positive that with exception of 1 clown in our middle, the
rest of the CCC community will understand the difference between
+=/+- versus =+  :)
