Even one win in 100 games would already be extraordinary for below 2000 player but it's certainly not verifiable.

This system is well known for a long time as Ujtelky variation of Pirc defence. It is quite good against engines and weaker human players. But in fact, if white knows effective plan with fast f4 and f5 pawn advance, black is often lost in 20-25 moves.

It's Because of the Move Order...You Mention! that People Lose!!

Ask a GM if The Move Order is Important? :) Or Houdini :) :)

If you want games, then here are 4 fics games played by the system that "you invented".

ARB, if the system actually worked well, you wouldn't need to see that game, because you'd know the opening inside out. This (I believe) is what Peter is trying to show.

Ok so you won't play Houdini on my system, so how about Crafty?

Think you could get the win? I don't.

This is _exactly_ why I want him to play a game. I can't find an engine book that would allow this opening to happen. Most engines _without_ a book wouldn't let this opening happen, so I am doubting the originality of his game.

So far I've test 31 books, and 55 engines.. _ZERO_ allow his "system" opening to happen naturally. You have to force the engine to play it. Under normal game conditions, this would never happen.
