  WannaBe: Opening should be A40(?)

like P Tregubov vs K Bischoff, 2003

May-22-18  moodini: <whiteshark> it may just have been the easiest may to get a draw rather than honourable. She forced exchanged to be left with what I guess is an easy draw. Perhaps the way to keep the big advantage was also more complicated to calculate under pressure.
