hiarcs explorer tournement book: is it the best?

Post by ozziejoe » Sat Jan 26, 2013 2:49 am

I've just purchased this book,which is used by the excellent hiarcs explorer interface, and i am wondering if folks know the basis for this claim:"This book defeats all other commercial opening books it has played including comfortably defeating the Chessbase Powerbook."


can any body direct me to the results of tournaments versus different books?

It was years ago, but i do remember folks playing a tournament with different opening books. Does anybody recall what the results where? how much difference does book make?
