  whiteshark: Thanks again to all for the <kind words and sympathy>. With the help of <special Borg glasses>, I can participate in life again.

So, for about a month now I have - after an absence of more than two years - an online connection again - mainly owed to my employer, who pressed me, as the last dinosaur, into the home-office.

  whiteshark: "Against the King's Indian Defense, Wojo played the Fianchetto Variation via the move order <1.Nf3 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.g3 Bg7 4.Bg2 0-0 5.d4 d6 6.0-0>. The position after White's move 6 is the starting point":

"From the position in the diagram, Wojo was able to achieve a stunning winning percentage of 80.2% over the course of 91 sample games found in the ChessBase database. This percentage would be even higher if we added in those games not catalogued in the databases (generally against weaker opponents)... Thus, ... the Fianchetto King's Indian really represents where the "big money" was. Wojo's brutal efficiency in defeating the King's Indian Defense game after game made the difference when it came to turning out the kinds of scores needed to win weekend Swisses. The Fianchetto King's Indian was a staple of the Wojo repertoire and was fundamental to his success. For this reason, we have devoted an entire volume to scrutinizing Wojo's ideas in the Fianchetto King's Indian."
