Kibitzer's Corner
May-01-07  hicetnunc: I discovered that the same position arises after 1.e4 Nc6 2.d4 e5 3.d5 Nce7 4.f4 Ng6!, except white doesn't have the dxe6 ep resource in that move-order :-)

Very nice initiative game by Bogoljubov !

Nov-20-07  whatthefat: Surely White's position is winning at move 10? Black's got a monster of a centre, and White's development is hampered by his king, but is it worth a whole piece? Maybe White would do best to fianchetto with 10.g3.
Jan-16-14  MelvinDoucet: 2. d5 is what I would've played instinctively but it's probably not the best move. White can go c4-Nf3 and claim this is a bad QG position for black.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: <MelvinDoucet>, I rather thought the position was equal/unclear after 9 moves, but I think you're on to something re: 10.Nc3. Both your move and possibly 10.c4 seem better.
