Aug-27-09  WhiteRook48: interesting
May-03-15  mandor: Kasparov said that the unique move coherent with the spirit of the opening (ideal queen gambit with the square d5 free for black) was play 7..e4!
May-03-15  mandor: 7...Ne4! (sorry .. )
Mar-07-18  LionShare20: Can someone explain 10.Be3 to me? I don't get this move.
Mar-07-18  ughaibu: Isn't Be3 explained by the subsequent play? White wanted to put the queen on d2 but behind the bishop.

  Dionysius1: Hi <Mandor>. Was Kasparov commenting on this game when he said that? It doesn't seem to work here - White occupies d5 on move 12. I can see how it would be right generally - 7...Ne4 gets rid of White's c3 knight so it can't influence control of d5.
