as i said above,my intention is not to claim dancess is better than crafty.
What matters to me is it is no easy oppoent for it anymore.
At least it is clear for me,danchess has 50 % chance against it in any kind of
match(on the same hardware).
I gave the aegt example just to demonstrate that on a very bad day for crafty
,danchess could be a very tough opponent for it(even win by a clear margin).
Nothing more..
