Jun-16-03  Corben: Chigorin really had plenty of guts. And an Alekhine-type calculation... His position is demolished but he knows he has the last card.

  kevin86: The condemned man ate a happy meal.
Aug-10-05  gambitfan: 5. Nc3 completely refutes 4. ... Bc5 ?! isn't it ?
Apr-12-10  AnalyzeThis: Apparently, white is better after 5. Nc3, but there would be a lot of chess left to be played.
Nov-21-10  meppi: also 5 d4 is good against 4Bc5.

black wouldnt capture with the bishop because the horse would just capture it, so after exd5. white can castle and attack the black king along the open e file
