Sep-29-10  Blaise99a: Could I be wrong, or is white's play unbelievably fearful......the 'if I roll over and put my belly up you won't hurt me?' strategy......the Ra3-Ra1-Ra2-Ra3....well, I've never........
Sep-30-10  Helloween: I see an advantage for Black within the first 20 moves. Maybe the double fianchetto for White was too slow?
Sep-30-10  ounos: 26. ...exf4 and Qg7, and...oops? How does white confront black's influence on the long diagonal?

Great vision.

  Fusilli: <Blaise99a> Maybe, but the English opening sometimes may give that impression, and then White suddendly unleashes and attacks. It didn't happen in this game, of course.

Mar-24-22  tonsillolith: This game is marvelous. The positional play...<chef's kiss>.

Of the many nice moves, one interesting point is how <36. Qa2> threatens 3 pieces, and the rejoinder <36...Qb7> reinforces the protection of each of those three.
