Feb-03-11  Gawk: What an interesting game. Near the start it looks like White's calling all of the shots, but he cannot breach black's defenses. In the end, White's kingside weaknesses do him in.

  perfidious: It's surprising to me that in this and the subsequent game Madsen-R Pert, Hastings 2006-07, White played the unthematic move 10.a3 in place of the normal positional idea 10.b3. In the later game, Black took advantage of this omission with 10....a4, obtaining an excellent position, though White's play in the middlegame was weak.
Feb-03-16  southeuro: good observation perfidious!
Mar-25-18  PhilFeeley: Williams also says he should have played 10...a4, preventing b4.
