Well, a lack of memory..... In WCC2004 just another game.... Fritz-Diep where
the Opening Preparation was relevant. It is not a work of one day. I worked on
the Diep Book for three years. Changing tested variation during a Tournament was
not a good idas. Recently, it happens with the Ikarus-Zappa in CCT7.

Of, I have managed to score several games during the year 2004. I wont say how I
do the work because I would reveal what I have had to learn very hardly over the
last 3 years and I am not willing to do it. You know why. :)

I think that you have not manage to score your ideas either since I donīt see
the base of your premise: "but I think you never managed to score". This is a
contradiction on your behalf after seeing your bright performance in WCC2004.

Who is wrong then? :)
