Wow! Could you please give me that game?
BTW I remember when Ed mentioned like he did implement also one (or some
more?) killerline because he wasn't satisfied with MCP's opening book full of
killerlines. He asked Marty if he found them. :-)
So probably YOU have found at least one of them. :-)
As far as I get MCP8 I'll check some other loosing lines too to see if Sandro
took them out.

Don't get me wrong, I love MCP since version 5 and already ordered v.8. But I
like Rebel10 more than Rebel8. :-)
And I don't want to see killerlines, no matter of whom.
