9x9. Preoccupied as prolificists with their own and general readers are in so hectic time, nary a Comment for adequate Nine Square until now. Three alternate opening set-ups are prescient enough for year 1971. Offhand, there may be no other implementation of at-least-original up-to-five-square Queen compound. The extra Pawn is -- the extra Pawn, hey 9x9. Now the first two set-ups with Bishops same-coloured are like Modern Chess, but Modern Chess was earlier. There is a lesson. Protocol assumes Nine Square should be aware of Modern(we assume omniscience), so the similarity detracts somewhat from Nine Square, whether or not powers behind NS were actually aware of Modern. It is improper to say, as done maybe more frequently today, that some prior art is not inspiration or precedent just because of one's ignorance of the earlier work impinging one's own. Fergus Duniho once wrote article, that we shall dredge up, on this particular blindspot many ''inventors'' have. Independent (even possibly simultaneous) invention is one thing, and due acknowledgement the greater thing to expect.
