I can only say that I feel quilty for the fact that Junior did not understand
the bishop endgame.

Amir Ban told me something about the evaluation function of Junior
I had the feeling that it may be wrong but I did not see practical examples in
the games that I played so I did not tell him and prefered to concentrate in
practical problems from my games.

I am sure that he will fix it in the future but unfortunately it is too late for
this championship.

I enjoyed Fritz losing but did not enjoy from the fact that Junior and Hiarcs
lost in the last round.
I do not see chessbase as one unit.

chessbase also had many things to improve including their behavior if they did
not congratulate the winner.

I congatulate shredder and ferret for being first and second.
