I am going to play with a computer in the 3/4 final of the correspondence
championship of Israel
One of the options is to buy Hiarcs7.

I want to know if the tests indicate that the difference between Selectivity

If it is 50 elo weaker at tournament time control and 200 elo weaker at blitz
then I can hope that it is  better at correspondence games.
