    How about a game where RHP members are allowed to talk in the forum about moves etc. I can put the move into fritz 9 and post its move. This sounds like a really fun idea and good learning experience.

    Rules:
    1) Moves will be made every day at 10 pm
    2) Fritz will get up to 30 minutes thinking time for each move.
    3) Do not use a engine to say moves! We want a good learning place
    4) Fritz plays white

    Fritz plays 1. e4

    I vote 1. c6

    Fritz and other engines are known to be great at tactics. e5 is tactical, so can c5 be. Caro Kann is quite qiuet and known to be drawish. A draw would be great!

    Current votes: (copy this to the end of your posts and change where nessicary)

    1 - Caro Kann Defence (c6)

    If people played chess for draws nobody would play anything other than the french.

    This post seems oddly familiar

    Ahh yes, here it is: http://www.redhotpawn.com/board/showthread.php?threadid=50861



    At least I proposed something different. :'(

    I'm not so into this idea of human v. engine. But since you guys seem to be confused let me enlighten you.

    First, it's going to get boring and old pretty fast, but if you really want to play it then do it right.

    Play 1...c5

    Try to go into a Dragon, because F9 can't handle those positions at all.

    My vote: 1...c5
