Mar-31-05  dac1990: An interesting final position which is characteristic of Alekhine's style.
Oct-22-05  Karpova: gruenfeld's 5...e6 was a bad mistake. he should have played nbd7 (Rubinstein vs W Von Holzhausen, 1926)

  plang: 3..Bg4 is rarely played abd seems to give White a pleasant edge. After 5..e6? Black's position is already bleak.
