    2. We will play as black.
    3. Move frequency will be 5 times a week Monday through Friday not on weekends.
    4. Voting will continue for around 24 hours give or take 2 hours.
    5. System will be set at full power as before.
    6 most popular moves will be played.
    7. Every one is entitled to one vote regardless of rating. No provisional rated people's votes will be considered to help avoid multiple accounts.

    Agressive and probably tactical against an engine? The idea for c6 is to get a positional game (which gives us the best chance against an engine).

    Come on, don't be scared. Grab the bull by the horns.

    Besides, it's chessmaster vs all of us, not just one person. Just need some high rated players to help us. We also have a whole day and as you know the more time you give a human the better he plays. As for computers after a point, more time to them means nothing. O and we got databases and books!
