Seems something must be wrong with the EPD string I made.
Chest finds no mate in 3,4,5,6 or 7
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

A mate in 12 is more fun anyway

The ellipsis belongs before "Be8", which otherwise would be an illegal move. The "well" can do with a comma. ;)
