OpenTal is Like Cstal squared

No way. No kind of caution or daring, care and "deep thinking", OpenTal has mauled me at pleasure.
It is not a beast; it is an extraterrestrial entity.
After this to play Houdini is like to play a child

I hear you Fern, I cannot stop playing this damned thing. After many, many games, I finally got a draw! Most games I fall to the insanity quickly!

I am looking for that miraculous draw. I swear I have played well, carefully, evading many threats and tricks, BUT...sooner or later the extraterrestrial entity shoot his rays...

In flames regards

Something horrible. You are in a perfectly known and neutral opening position and ALREADY the extraterretrial gives to himself a great advantage....

Psy warfare?

I believe it is! He(it) crushed me in one of my pet dragon lines that I know is a draw with best play. Yet it seems, OpenTal, not unlike the man himself, creates unfathomable complications, and we as humans cannot handle the pressure. Lovely!

In this very moment I am playing a Ruy Lopez and I have got an almost closed position where really I cannot see anything he can do againts me, but, who knows....
Maybe this is my draw....

Red of my blood. The Thing compelled me to surrender at move 44.
Brando is lucky to live in China. Too far for my body guards....
