Feb-24-11  wordfunph: Dr. Anthony Saidy on this game..

"The time limit should be changed to 40 moves in 5 hours. Then we'd both be nearly unbeatable!"

Jul-22-22  Retireborn: In the tournament book Saidy relates that he played 6.Nh4 (which he calls odd-looking) because he'd seen the Petrosian game from Siegen which originated it. Browne thought for an hour(!) before his reply, making his subsequent defeat nearly inevitable. In the event he sealed 41...Kf7 but resigned due to 42.Rd7+ Kg8 43.Rxb7 Nd4 44.Bc3 Rd3+ 45.Ke1 Re3+ 46.Kf1 Rxe4 47.Rb4.

In subsequent years further interesting games with 6.Nh4 were played, but my impression is that it has rather put off Black players from going 5...e4. A recent example is:-

Nakamura vs Anand, 2016
