I'd prefer to move the light bishop in the other direction though, after moving the dark bishop and advancing the center pawns. Bb4 forces white to either exchange or make some more pointless moves.
It is not really a waste of tempo because it is in response to Bc2. Bf4 would not have worked before. Anyway, it is a moot point now. Let's hope the machine plays Kh1 :-)

I bet with such form of organization Hiarcs forum would have beaten the crap out of CCC. Democracy is good in bloody French Revolution, decapitating kings, but not when dealing with the teams of experts on 8+ cores overclocked Rybkas.

You totally miss the point. This is just a bit of fun and for enjoying ourselves, winning is not everything. Relax and enjoy.

My vote : 28 ... Ra8.

Rb8 must get to a5.

My engine was quite strong till I added knowledge to it.

<lurking mode off>

A sacrificial move like ...Rf3 or even ...Bf3 (at the right moment and with the right preparation) is possibly a gift that the R30 could not easily refuse...

Something to think about....
