|Apr-26-05|| ||who: as the isolated pawn with many pieces coming off is a big disadvantage|
|Apr-26-05|| ||who: whereas 6...exd4 7.Ng5 Nxc5 seems to win a pawn.|
|Apr-26-05|| ||samvega: people weren't as smart back then|
|Apr-27-05|| ||samvega: 6..exd4 7.Ng5 Nxc5 8.Qe2 and white can recover the pawn. Not to imply that 6..exd4 would be wrong...|
|Aug-30-05|| ||nasmichael: It's not about being "smart", <samvega>--when a position is "new", there are many attempts by many great players before someone falls upon the Truth that sways theorists towards the Idea, and then some popular player sways the masses toward the execution of the idea by that said Player. (Then a Variation is named after said Player, immortalizing him until the glut of unwashed woodpushers imitate his innovation until it becomes passe, and some other Player discovers a refutation which has been revealed by a new insight. The newer players aren't "smart"er at all--they just copy someone who thought to look at the idea differently.|

Very rare to see Blackburne play this inaccurate actually.|

Isn't it? What an awful blunder at the end, too.
