You also missed the point. Zappa always used a native book but it was in a hurry
to find a Booker: Erdogan was the option and his book was in CB Format.

He had to provide a book only with 3-4 weeks for preparation. It was impossible
to create a native book.

While the ICGA estalishes that Rule, then players will hava to accept that rule.
I don't care if you think it is a good idea or not. I have seen a Booker for 4
years and I have never used the CB Gui to hold my books. In this case, it was an
emergency since I had to retire from the Zappa's Project. A solution had to be
done by Anthony.

The fact is Zappa + Erdogan has been a great solution. Such debates are relevant
before the Tournaments are held. Finising the Tournament, it is just irrelevant.
So, it seems to be that you missed my points too. Then, what you want to imply?
