@JugbandFrog, thanks again for all the work you put into this. Having asked for corrections in my favor, I should also request review of the Kent- NIU result, which I think went the other way.
Picking games is funny. When I win a close one, I consider myself brilliant. When I lose a close one, I'm a victim of random chance. So, I gladly accept the award for second-half brilliant randomness or random brilliance.
