Beating Ingo is just the first step
in becoming a true stone-not-casting-dice :-)

Don't get me wrong. I'm not anti-Rolling Stones.

At least a few games should be possible.

Yes, I would have played it over the board too.
Till now that would not be based on a three ply calculation,
but on taking out the most forcefull X-threat in the position 4c2-d1.

Having done this example of an end-game calculation and seeing
the easy mathematics I should be able to calculate this over the board as well.
In the middle game - like in chess - strategy and intuition play a bigger role.
