Sep-05-04  dickweed: Qe7 was a misstake obviously, and White took advantage of it in a good way. Another opening trap to avoid I guess

  FSR: The big mistake IMO was 2...d5? Nice crush by White.
Jun-12-07  Griffard: oh man i wish i knew this trick, i just played this on the white side today and missed it

  FSR: <sea7kenp> Yes. Is that a controversial opinion? See, e.g., Kasparov vs I Gountas, 1996.
