Feb-10-04  clendenon: yea, it, looks like a pretty dumb move.
Feb-11-04  ossolinskm: oh i see now that he was preventing the pin after d5 by white, but he was better of letting white take the knight
Apr-01-04  nikolaas: I think 11... ♔d8was a little better. His rook would be on the right side of his king.
