  keypusher: Chess Carnival pointed this out on Andersson's page -- the whole conception crowned by 26. b4 is amazing. Is there a book of Andersson's games in English?
Apr-27-08  Open Defence: what a beautiful game, very creative, the Bishop on d5 could not be challenged of course
Aug-09-12  Cemoblanca: The underdog on b3 mutates to a great hero! Wonderful!
Jun-16-15  Naniwazu: <keypusher> This and many other of Andersson's games are analyzed in 'Grandmaster Chess Strategy: What Amateurs Can Learn From Ulf Andersson's Positional Masterpieces' which you can purchase from most online book stores.
