Are the pro shogi players really clever?

Meijin has been the highest title of the pro shogi players for 400 years. Mr. Ito made the first computer shogi to defeat a former Meijin, Mr. Yonenaga. (cf: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_shogi) Mr. Ito was also the first person to say broadly that a computer shogi surpassed even current Meijin.

It’s no wonder that almost all of the pro shogi players didn’t accept what Mr. Ito said. However, Mr. Ito proved that by statistics, Elo rating. Needless to say, shogi is a logical board game, so the pro shogi players must be good at logic, but actually most of the pro shogi players were not able to understand Elo rating for some years. They finally came to realize around 2016 that a computer shogi already surpassed the pro shogi players. (cf: http://news.nicovideo.jp/watch/nw2146725) Now, we are able to know that a computer shogi substantially surpassed a top pro shogi player in 2011 or 2012, thanks to Mr. Ito. (cf: http://aleag.cocolog-nifty.com/blog/cat60425624/index.html)

Still, without statistics, the pro shogi players must realize the contents of shogi the best in the world, so they should have come to know firstly that a computer surpassed a human. The fact is that they were not able to realize it for about 5 years. If they don’t understand even the contents of shogi, what do they exist for?
