Still following Stockfish-dev's main line, with a current evaluation of -1.38 (though only at depth 50). Still waiting for something other than a Stockfish move!
Now at -1.48, at depth 60.
-1.44 at depth 63.

I honestly don't get 5...Ne7, unless Harvey is going to play a shocker in the next two moves, I have that in the position Nge7 would have transposed, black had 2 great alternatives, so this certainly saves me a lot of time not having to check them out anymore.

1. g4 d5 2. g5 e5 3. d4 exd4 4. Nf3 c5 5. Bg2 Ne7 6. c3

5...Ne7 is the move that avoids the guaranteed draw ;-)

I don't know about that move. You two are playing WAY TOO fast for my crippled computer and I to keep up with the analysis. It looks as if there were better moves.

I'm just running Stockfish-dev, without providing any guidance at all. So far, all moves since g5 have been Stockfish first choices at depths of about 60. So I'm watching Stockfish self-play so far!

Well, so far Stockfish has found all the kernels. Or was "blind hen" intended to be self-referential. :wink:
