Engines are evil
Compiled by Timwestlund
--*--

Sometimes a player plays a relly beautifull idea with a subtle flaw that no human can see, sometimes the engine does not understand the compensation and sometimes a player bluffs to save his neck in a bad position. The engine completly ruins the charm of this kind of ideas by instantly revealing the evaluation. An eval that sometimes mean nothing in a human game, it just unfairly depicts the beautifull idea as a blunder/mistake.
