Jan-16-12  King Death: This is a familiar idea from the Sicilian Dragon but it's hard to believe it came from this opening. Simagin was a player full of imagination.
Feb-08-17  computer chess guy: 14. h5! and White has advantage. The pawn cannot be taken. After something like .. Rb8 15. Qe3 B7 16. hxg6 hxg6 White keeps the Exchange and is pressing.
