Why don't we create a database of board positions which have a guaranteed win.  I don't believe this has been done before.

No, storing the solution IS THE problem.  We don't have enough data 
available.

Look, we've baan talking about how to store the board and moves and all 
that.  The realities are that we are very limited by IO.  We've got to 
get a problem out to the machines to chew on and then report back in a 
timely manner.  The servers can't be overburdened by IO or Data.  We've 
got to find a way to minimize the data transmitted.

<SNIP>

Lets start talking about this.  If we get stuck on how to store the moves 
and all we'll never get to this.  Besides the way that the moves are 
calculated will probably change the way the data is stored anyway.
