Re: Gaviota, Wasp, The Baron, Pro Deo

I am also interested in a more recent version of The Baron. Basically, I like to analyze and sometimes play against positionnal engines, and those some of my favourite (although I have recently discovered Zarkov 6.55, which also has a very... understandable style of play).
