congratulation also for the victory but it has nothing to do with selective vs
brute force search and I do not see it as a food for thought.

It is obvious for me that programs search too many illogical moves and brute
force will always lose against correct selective search with the same hardware
if you are not close to solving the game.

If selective search of somebody is losing then it only proves that the specific
selective search is bad and proves nothing about selective search vs brute force
