  plang: This game makes the Trompovsky look pretty powerful. Perhaps ...4 c5 and ...7 Qb2 are a little over-aggressive.
Nov-08-13  Wyatt Gwyon: 18. Bc7! is one hell of a move.

"As is usual, it is the sheer simplicity of Adams' solutions which is so striking. It is easy to understand that if White has the e5 square on which to nestle his bishop then the 'stay-at-home' Black kingside will render him quite lost. However, to move from this realization to this move which 'attacks' the 6 knight in a most unusual way seems to be, for many, not quite so automatic." -- Peter Wells, "Winning with the Trompowsky"
