Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-06-09  AnalyzeThis: Goodness. These guys didn't waste any time. This is like a boxing match where both guys skip boring things like jabs and just throw overhand rights at each other. White connected first here and got the knockout.

Jan-25-13  JimNorCal: This is a "Horwitz" defense?
Looks a lot like a Dutch with ...b6
Jul-07-14  heuristic: 10.d5 keeps the initiative.
10...a5 11.e4 fxe4 12.Nxe4 Na6

13...Kh8 looks to hold.
14.Kxf2 Bxf3 15.gxf3 Qxe7

  Domdaniel: <JimNorCal> You're quite right - of course it's a Dutch. Though technically it's also a Horwitz Defence, ie 1.d4 e6.

I reckon the Horwitz name should be reserved for lines that do not transpose quickly into mainstream openings. I usually reply to 1.d4 with 1...e6, but almost always reach a Dutch, QGD, Benoni, Bogo, etc.

  fredthebear: The final move offers a clearance sacrifice that threatens 22.Re7+ and 23.Qg7#.
