Apr-26-06  cavaleiro: 20...BxD5 - what a blunder!
Feb-23-08  Ruy Lopez: Why not 15......... gxf5? Up a knight and the h-file is a lot harder to open up to attack.

Jan-11-10  KingG: <Ruy Lopez> <Why not 15......... gxf5? Up a knight and the h-file is a lot harder to open up to attack.> The problem is that would open the g-file, which White can exploit immediately with 15...gxf5 16.Qg5+ Ng6 17.hxg6, regaining the piece, and still retaining a strong attack.

  whiteshark: It was not Herr Lehmanns day, me thinks.
Sep-04-10  WhiteRook48: poor showing for opening of the day
Jan-29-12  backrank: <cavaleiro: 20...BxD5 - what a blunder!>

Not exactly a blunder, White was winning anyway: 20. ... Nf7 or Qd6 (or similar moves) fail to 21. Ne7+.

Mar-31-12  Qweenlover: 2...d6 is not good move 2...Nc6 or 2...Nf6 are better.
