Jul-05-06  hitman84: Russian System beats Grunfeld once again.

Nice idea by Ftacnik
15.e5 is a very strong move.

Jul-05-06  hitman84: Beliavsky improves on this V Babula vs Ftacnik, 2006

A clinical game.White just had an enormous space advantage.

Apr-24-07  aazqua: Uggh. White turns a good positoin into a loser with 19 n*b2. Just bring the horse back and concentrate on the weak d pawn and white's iffy minor piecves.
Oct-18-07  midknightblue: is black really so bad off. I need to review this line more. Hitman, you seem to be suggesting the russian is so good, it almost refutes the grunfeld?
Aug-14-09  aazqua: Hey! I was about to make exactly the same comment as I made nearly two years ago. That 19th move is really a boner. Wonder if Ftacnik somehow completely missed the response. Seems impossible but I don't see any other justification.
