I tend to agree. On both accounts. Going at half skill could be the other
way to go, but maybe that gives some advantage to a bloke with low skill
and penalises a lad with high skill? But yes IMO a called shot is always
harder to do, takes more concentration, even for a grand master, so there
should be some sort of preperation or penalty to balance the game.
