    How about this amazing example from a game of the Marauding Viking, Bent Larsen? A highly instructive sample of how strategy and tactics go hand in hand blending together in grandmasters games. And I have to tell you, my aged Fritz 6 was totally confused when trying to evaluate position after the 27th move in the game: it changed its assessment from "=" to "+/-" over just three moves. Can it be really?
