This modest CV says ''give humans a chance against computers.'' Here's an old discussion of that: Future_chess_computer-human, ''old'' because the last comment was Lavieri's April 2005.

Charles Gilman's modest cvs are one venue for minor pawn changes ramifying largely, Modest_Pawns, similar in style to this Tandem Pawn. Below 21st Century is chosen because of its own sort of ''tandem pawn'' in the Jester, different from present new cv Tandem-Pawn Chess.

Of course, from Fischer Random to Twenty-first Century Chess, 21st_Chess, it is standard plug-in either introductory or concluding, many hundreds of the over 5000 cvs known to exist to say, this will be hard for computers. 21st's particular take concludes in that regard ''beat Deep Blue.'' Many other cvs would also be found stating to comparable effect: dispense with opening theory, beat computers, level the playing field.

Then too there's the poem eleven years ago, Dialogue, ridiculing computers as ''stopgap laptop'' and ''mainframe lamebrain'' because it's back to square one across the board. Yelling_the_answer.
