  Honza Cervenka: 22...Ke7 covering the poor Bishop c8 by Rook h8 fails for 23.Qa3 or 23.Qb4 with unavoidable devasting discovered check.
Aug-15-06  EmperorAtahualpa: That knight is deadly on d6!! White saw the prospects for his knight as early as move 12 (12.Be3) when exchanging bishops. A very well executed plan!

  Phony Benoni: It was not a good day to be Black's light-squared bishop. Here's a game that was played in the same round: F Bohatirchuk vs K Vygodchikov, 1923
Sep-30-10  lentil: start attacking (11. .. h5) before completing your development, you lose.
