Jul-14-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Moves like 22.hxg6! seem so obvious in a rearview, but OTB?
Jul-04-08  talisman: adolph did not like draws! i like this guy.
Jul-23-09  Knight13: 17...c5!? should give Black some counterplay on the queenside.
Nov-15-10  RRRuff: Someone please enlighten me! I've been looking at the Ruy Lopez. Why does white not play 5 c3? It seems to me that the white bishop always ends up going to b3 and then later to c2. Wouldn't this save white a move? Also, doesn't 5 c3 give protection for the d4 move? I'm not a strong player and I don't pretend to be. As I look at the Ruy Lopez this has been a recuring question for me. What's wrong with my thinking?
Oct-11-11  cuppajoe: RRRufff: 5. c3?? Nxe4 gives up a pawn for free. After 5. 0-0 Black can still take the pawn, but he can't keep it.

In that case White winds up with bishop, knight, and rook for the queen.

  HarryP: The position after White's 13th was the same in Pillsbury-Marco, Vienna 1898. Marco played 13... f5.

Sergeant and Watts: "White's 19th was probably a miscalculation as he must now lose a Pawn with little compensation."

Sergeant and Watts: 21... Nf8 "would have left White without attack and a Pawn down."
