   I think i made a little mistake in my statement above
        My current version is as strong as crafty even **SOMETIMES** better...

without **SOMETIMES** the sentence would have been incomplete.

   As i said in my reply to Uri. I am not drawing any conclusions with this
games,I know statistics is a tricky thing.
But still i think i can say with a good safety factor that danchess is as strong
as crafty. This ofcourse depends on the definition of "as strong". For me +-
30elo is insignificant.
  I really don't want to discuss on this issue further because this is not Why i
originally posted the message.
Hope you understand.
