I can probably set up a special book with only that line if you want.  That
would work.

The most interesting thing I saw was that a "clean" crafty will play this
differently than the "real" crafty, due to all the games you have had Brause
play.  :)  The position learning let crafty walk a tightrope and win a game
relatively easily even though it had no book to help it...

First real case I've seen where the position learning stuff has made a
real difference in the way it plays.  Warning to humans:  don't try this
against Crafty.  :)
