Hi Dieter,

I submitted all games with the HS book. I did not claim all the lines were bad.
I said the were bizarre. Most of them is too passive to be good. If an engine
comes out of the opening with -0.65 (as was the case in Spike vs. Pro Deo) it
will probably lose against an opponent of its own caliber.
