Re: Queens Gambit

Except that I did not say that. And you also didn't make the most stupid strawman, yeah right... Here is my quote: That works sometimes, but if the result of your play is a win/loss in every situation, your play isn't that good at all I disagree, I think someone could easily program a "Beth Harmon"...
