Jan-06-05  sourcerer: followed by piece fork

nice stuff

Sep-19-05  child of my tears: <sourcerer> I think Na4 is the threat and black has nowhere to put the queen. But the fork probably wins too.
Sep-19-05  IT4LICO: I'm not sure the b-fork wins, maybe after b4 bxb4 axb4 Nxb4 Black has a good attack. Na4 wins, and maybe f5 wins too...
Sep-06-07  syracrophy: The fork's on 17.f5, not 17.b4
Sep-06-07  dovif: na4 d2+ Rxd2 Qa4 still black is down and in horrible position.

F5 is better, apart from fork, F5 releases bishop from F6 or H6?

Jun-07-09  totololo: What is the history of the Berger variation? When? WHo? .... Same for Paulsen variation of the Central game
