Hi Harry,


I tested the positions again. Highest value was +0.59 after Shredder 9
calculating for a few minutes. Show me another test suite or book that gives so
balanced lines. For Nunn positions Robert Allgeuer made some investigations sent
to me by email that they are not all balanced, some give a score of more than
70% to White or Black overall. Nommen Suite also has known weaknesses. I played
many thousand games with all of them and I am happy to have found a better
alternative now.

Best Regards
