Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-15-04  ruylopez900: <chessgames.com> I do believe that the practitioners list is incomplete. Either that or it isn't really a mainline.
Jul-15-04  refutor: it's the mainline of the 8.Nf3 line, but who would ever play 8.Nf3 once 8.Bb5+! was found Benoni, Taimanov Variation (A67)
Oct-05-05  Zettel: One can arrive at this position from a King's Indian where one has re-captured on d5 with the c-pawn and not the e-pawn as is being done today.
Jun-05-06  PaulKeres: Move 9 is ? its missing ?
Jun-05-06  KingG: 9.Be2, but yeah, they should probably correct it.
Jun-05-06  PaulKeres: Thanks <KingG>, there's actually a whole load of ECOs with moves missing.
