  DanielBryant: What did Maroczy expect, playing a second move like Be2?

  dickweed: Exactly why does white surrender here? I fail to see the imediate threat
Nov-05-04  Morphystyle: White will lose a piece or two or get mated. For example Qe3 Ng5, Kh1 Qf2 with multiple threats which can not be met. The magnitude of black's threats are not easily seen until a few moves later
Jul-22-05  lentil: seems like W defends with 21. Bxh7+ Kxh7 22. Qd3 and 23. Qg3, forcing off the Queens. W remains a pawn down, but I see no reason to quit.

  ChessDude33: After 2...Nf6 Can't this become a reversed petrov defense or reversed ruy lopez closed with an extra tempo?

  jessicafischerqueen: This game is incorrectly listed as a Match game = it is not.

This was a casual game played at the Budapest Chess Club.

White can't get too loose against the open defenses...his initiative is probably smaller against them than against any of the semi-opens.
