What were you expecting? Around here 2.e3 was a top alternative, the problem is white has to check a TON of lines which becomes prohibitive.
I looked at 2. Bg2 h3 e3 and c4 I did not consider g5 although it is ok.

Re: Dylan Sharp Vs. Harvey Williamson (G4)

The first occurance I have of 2.g5 was by Henry Grob played in 1964. That makes it an appropriate move to play in this game! I don't have the whole game though only the reference. Anyone have the game or an earlier game with this move? Regards, Regards [Event "corr"] [Site "corr"] [Date "1964.??.??...

Lot's of possible moves here. I briefly looked at h6 and e6 but e5 looks the most natural. g5 was not a move I was expecting so will be interesting.

is kibitzing allowed?
I would say yes as long as you are not suggesting what we should play next, just looking at alternatives to what we play etc....

If anyone is wondering why we are playing this game see this thread viewtopic.php?f=2&t=72084

I'm willing to defend 1.g4 against anybody that seriously think it is losing, and I guarantee that I can draw them.
Am willing to give it a go 1...d5. if you want to play we should probably play the game in the tournaments and matches sub-forum?

Re: Similarity Report 2019

Then I think it should be moved back to General, EO threads should be only about source code discussions (as the description of the subforum says.) And this thread should possibly be moved to forum help and suggestions. I questioned the setting up of the Engine origins forum all those years ago... ...

Lc0 must be included in the organization. So we can see very enjoyable games.
Lc0 entered last year. It is a shame they have not this year. However it is expensive even with the subsidy being offered by the ICGA.

It seems to be where the IJCAI (to which the ICGA linked itself?) is holding its conferences, more than anything the ICGA itself wants.
I think you are right.
