Personally I would not bother using Sissa or C.Bishop in a CV. Frequent reference to Sissa is for comparison when running across multi-pathers. Raven(R+NN) and S appear about the same value since Sissa has four paths to its Rook-squares, both near Queen value. Raven too does not generally fit well into any quality CV. I like Sissa better because of originality and well-known arrival squares.(The Courier de la Dama Furious uses CB.) Crooked Bishop so-called is only somewhat less vacuous than 'Crooked Rook':--is that already invented? [Yes of course, in same article Betza re-invents CB]
