Jul-26-11  Grandpa jo: Pas une bien belle sortie pour les blancs!

Je n'aime pas 12.g3?! 13.Rb1 est une perte de temps et 14.g4 ne vaut guère mieux. 15.dxc6 donne cède le centre. Après 16.Dxd6 les noirs n'ont aucun souci è se faire pour le pion en moins en plus ils ont une avance de développement.

28.bxa7! est meilleur que 28.Ch3? la tour noire ne peut pas s'aventurer en eaux profondes!

Jan-09-14  GREYSTRIPE: Bent Larsen made history with the most attacks in pawn tradition in the history of chess from 1978-1982. The imminent Grand Master of Tournament Chess had everything in place from the first move regards the Ottoman Advance. Pawns matter to the degree that a benefit can be procured from them. Bent Larsen made respectable the Pawn Attack. It is good to deeply study the fine chess victories of Bent Larsen. The pawn is Gauss the Game...

  fredthebear: White plays the middlegame poorly, and Larsen plays like a grandmaster. On move 20, Black is down a pawn, and has three isolated pawns, yet goes on to win.

24...Bd5! is quite a find. By move 28, it is Black that has the pawn plus. White resigns on move 42, down to his last pawn.
