Feb-20-07  Ziggurat: Talk about oddball opening. However, it transposes to a kind of Benoni. Then it's vintage Tarrasch all the way - he presses his opponent back, grabs the key squares, and the rest is simple technique.

  Honza Cervenka: Quite interesting detail is that after move 30 there are still all Pawns and pieces on the board and that black is almost motionless.
May-20-08  Rod Serling: This game goes to show bad moves like Nh6? transcend time.
May-31-18  Saniyat24: ooh Black just killed himself...where are his knights going from h6 and a6?
Aug-02-19  gambitfan: after 2. ... Nh6 ?!
