Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-03-05  raydot: David Bronstein, in <200 Open Games>, makes some interesting comments:

"It is pointless looking in the books for this gambit -- you will not find anything like it there. The move 4. Be2 was invented by the master [Tartakover]...the White bishop comes out to e2 so as not to be attacked by the black QP when the latter deems it judicious to make the journey to the central d5 square...

And whilst with the bishop on c5 White has a limited choice, either to take the pawn or retreat, with the bishop on e2 he has the new possibility of going round the side of the pawn."

They said things like "whilst" quite a bit way back in 1957.
