  Sneaky: This is a little different from the Lowenthal Sicilian because ...Nf6 and ...Nc3 is inserted.
Apr-14-07  Dick Brain: <This is a little different from the Lowenthal Sicilian because ...Nf6 and ...Nc3 is inserted.> But after White 9th they have transposed to the same thing. This was a good game for White; it's not so easy to see where Black went wrong in this game (except of course for his last move).
