Dec-01-04  kostich in time: Acrushing win by Bogo against one of the brightest young stars of the day..Bog probably played the SECOND best chess at Bled..after Bled, all he could win were German championships(which were pretty strong affairs in those days)
Jul-01-06  GeauxCool: Bogo concentrates on white squares after the necessary but weakening move 10 e3, after which white flounders moves 11-16. Bogo's response here is extraordinary, 16...Nb4, as the Knight cannot be taken. <If 17.c3xb4 then 17...Bxa1 18.Rxa1 Rd8 wins> 19...c4! Ingenious ploy to win White's queen. Whhite is practically stalemated by move 20, tries to get counterplay until 25, when Bogo's attack begins. -Fine
Sep-16-10  mulde: It seems to me a Fianchetto Gruenfeld, not a King's Indian as it is named here.
Sep-08-14  jerseybob: 14.dc definitely looks like a lemon; I'd vote for 14.Rac1 to place a rook opposite black's queen, just as black has done to white.

  Mating Net: Black minor pieces were on the rampage. 23...Be1! is a slick interference move. The K side dark squares are under siege and the White dark square Bishop is in exhile on the Q side.
