  tpstar: <azaris> Nice game, and very nice annotations on your blog. As Black, I prefer 6. Nc3 Ne4 transposing. Your lines with ... c5 look interesting, but I've had much better results leaving the Pc7 at home and playing for ... e5 & ... f5 than advancing on the Queenside, since that seems to help White. Panno vs Keres, 1963 I thought you were roughly even until the Rooks came off, then his pieces had more scope.

P.S. I *hate* ... Ba6.

Jul-14-05  azaris: I can't honestly remember the last time I've played f5 in a queen's pawn opening as Black, it's just not in my character even if it's completely book.

Did I mention I subsequently refuse to play the KID or the Dutch?
