Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-14-04  drukenknight: Has anyone seen the French w/ 3...c5? only 9 games in the entire database and I'm seeing a whole lot on the internet, anyone know what is the best line?

This is not a bad representative of the line. He is holding his own w/ Torre almost till the time control. In this game, shouldnt it be: 13....Bxd4

Dec-30-04  Whitehat1963: What happens after 44...Kg6?
Dec-30-04  hintza: 44...Kg6 is best met by 45.Qe5 and the Be6 cannot be saved due to the pin by the queen and the queen's control of the f6 square.
Dec-05-06  Resignation Trap: <> Black in this game was not William Winter , but rather the American player, John Winter.

This game was played in Detroit, and Black missed a golden opportunity when he played 27...Qxb2, instead of 27...Bf5!

  Phony Benoni: 3...c5 is a gambit which may not be very good objectively, but is something White has to respect and play carefully against. This makes it ideally suited to fast Internet games, but not so common at slower speeds.

Note Torre's reaction. Instead of trying to grab a gambit pawn, he settles for a positional edge by heading for positions resembing the Tarrasch where he can work on the isolated d-pawn.
