  Chessical: A controlled and instructive positional crush by Friedrich Samisch. This is an early Queen's Indian in which Black plays <d6, g6 and then e5>; but fails to generate counterplay. Other pioneers preferred to play an early <c5> and this gave them a freer game:

A Vajda vs Zoltan von Balla, 1921
Gilg vs E Canal, 1929

<21...Nf8?!> seems inferior to 21...c6, forcing the N backwards.

<23...dxe5> is no better after 24.fxe5 c6 25.exf6+ Kg8 26.Ne7+ Kh8 27.Nxc6 Bxc6 28.Bxc6

Jun-30-06  Rama: What's wrong with 9. ... e5? Followed by Re8 and Bf8, black can develop threats against the e4 square. By forcing white to play d5, black can stabilize the center, play a5 and Nc5, and go to work on the K-side with Bc8-d7. I have used this set up with good results.
