Jul-24-05  LondonSystem: White played well but perhaps black was a little too passive!
Sep-07-06  chessarmenia: you are correct in your analysis, black played as many amateurs do, randomly "developing" their pieces and moving their rooks behind their pawns only never to move those pawns, and of course colle severely punished this pacific man with his opening which can severely punish unsuspecting amateurs such as schubert.

  ganstaman: Schubert's page says that: <He was Czech Champion in 1919.>

I'm not going to say that he didn't underestimate the power of a Colle System's kingside attack, but calling him an <unsuspecting amateur> may be taking it too far.

Oct-09-06  RookFile: Well, one improvement is not to castle into mate. That may be putting it too strong, but why not, instead of 8....0-0 make moves like ...Qc7 geared against the invasion on e5?

  plang: Pandolfini recommends 13..Bxe5 or 13..f5 with an edge to White.
