I think that Fritz may miss a third move when you use 2-best mode because Fritz
is slower with the 2-best mode.

I think that a better idea is to use the 1-best mode and only if you do not like
the move of Fritz to use 2-best mode.

I think that it is a good idea to check if Fritz5 without help is better than
the man-machine combination.

You can play a match between the man-combination and the original Fritz5 and see
if the man-machine combination can beat Fritz5 and if it has better results than
Fritz5 against other programs.

If I had to prepare to the match when I am the man in the man-machine
combination then I would try to do it because I want to be productive to the
computer and I am afraid that without preperation I would be counter productive.
