> became convinced that with good statistics (thousands of compiled games), Ja, ja, I said that more or less. My vision was to have rated opponents play odds games, and it did not matter whether the opponents were humans or computers (except that there are now no computers that play as weakly as this 2330-rated human FM!). Remember, the principle is that Pawn and move may be 2:1 odds if the stronger player is rated 1800 USCF and the weaker is 1600; but if the stronger player is 2600, he can only give P+move to a 2200 (numbers are made-up examples for rhetorical effect). I depend on you to complete this work. I took it as far as I could, and now that I am older I find that I cannot wrap my mind around it as I once could. Expect no more goodies in this field from me.
