Hi Theo,

>It's nice to see other people become interested in the game!

Oh, I am interested in that game since almost 3 month :-)

>It is more subtle then you (OR EVEN INGO!) thought.

Seems so. Unfortunatly I was satisfied to beat Ingo in Paderborn and did not
notice that a new EinStein-Star was born there, otherwise I would have played
you. May be we will have an EinStein-Match in Leiden.

Yep, I was wrong, sorry, I am a stupid fool. The position was much more
complicate than I thought. Would you play this move over the board too? If yes,
you understand the game much deeper I will ever do.
