OK, one more (and no, I never claimed to have any special skills and ideas in
this area at all, that was you and Vincent :) ).  One of the poor programs
provided with a book by me and playing with the black pieces will be out of book
after 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. cxd5 as happened for Crafty against Diep last year ,
if I hadn't thought of this possibilty before - isn't that just awful ? I don't
think so, it's just logical. Control has become a major point IMHO , the engines
don't do too bad on their own. Of course it is better if you thought of some
potentially relevant line like this, but better nothing than random grandmaster
lines. Yes, you opposed this point of view multiple times before in discussions
with Uri , but I think you never managed to score. I'd accept a challenge btw -
over a good bottle of wine, champaigne, or so.
