Kibitzer's Corner
May-01-07  hicetnunc: I discovered that the same position arises after 1.e4 Nc6 2.d4 e5 3.d5 Nce7 4.f4 Ng6!, except white doesn't have the dxe6 ep resource in that move-order :-)

Very nice initiative game by Bogoljubov !

Nov-20-07  whatthefat: Surely White's position is winning at move 10? Black's got a monster of a centre, and White's development is hampered by his king, but is it worth a whole piece? Maybe White would do best to fianchetto with 10.g3.
Jan-16-14  MelvinDoucet: 2. d5 is what I would've played instinctively but it's probably not the best move. White can go c4-Nf3 and claim this is a bad QG position for black.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: <MelvinDoucet>, I rather thought the position was equal/unclear after 9 moves, but I think you're on to something re: 10.Nc3. Both your move and possibly 10.c4 seem better.

  transpose: I've played this opening (after the ninth move) from black's side in dozens of speed chess games on the internet. My approach is to advance my pawns while keeping white from piercing the pawn front. It is more fun to play as black and my results are generally good. When I lose, it is because I advance a pawn too far and allow white's extra piece to come to life.
Feb-27-18  cwcarlson: 6...♕e4=; 6...♘f6! 7.♘c3 ♗b4 ∓ Houdini.
