Apr-07-05  Mating Net: The pawn rush on the Kingside wins this game for White. If 16...hxg5 17.fxg5 Nxg5 18.Qh5 f6 19.Bxg5 fxg5 and White plays 20.Be4!
Jul-03-09  Freelix: A faster way to win starts with the inventive 22 Qxc1!, planning 23 Rf4 to harass the exposed Qh4. Once the Q leaves the K-side, White's attack will become irresistible.

  GrahamClayton: 9.d5 & 10.g4 gained time by forcing back the Black pieces.
Feb-22-19  Violin sonata: This game explain why you must develop your knights before develop your bishops, with a fluid center, you want knights out rather than bishops because knights can be more flexibly adapted to changed circumstances. Bishops, once developed, often get kicked around by enemy center pawns :)
Mar-31-20  tigreton: In Strategy secrets of soviet school, Suetin says, as early as 9 ... Bf5, that Black's position is very difficult to stand, because of the lack of coordination between pawns and pieces, which will cause his pieces to be force backwards by the phalanx of white pawns on the center and the kingside.
