Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-03-04  Shad0wl0rd16: This was a great game by hodgeson, playing the Pseudo-Trompowski, (1.d4 d5 2.Bg5) one of his best openings ever with white.
Jul-20-10  rossvassilev: This "pseudo-Tromp" (1.d4 d5 2.Bg5) is actually the Levitsky Attack, after Russian Stefan Levitsky.
Sep-26-15  Kettalchess: 39..Ke7
40. Nc2!+ (Better than Ng4+ or Nc4+) win the Rouck and the game
