Apr-10-05  acdc: was this rapid or classical?? why was istratescu dropping so many pawn??
Apr-10-05  Milo: "Karpov Istratescu Match Rapid 2005" Classical ;).
Mar-17-10  Garech: 6.Qe2 is not necessary and ruins what is otherwise a very strong and underestimated opening at all levels - the Vienna game, especially with 2. ... Nf6 and 3.f4 ... a safe variation of the King's Gambit in which black has to play very accurately to equalise.
