May-25-03  kingspawn: is 3. h3 theory? it seems very weird to me

  Sneaky: This is a rarely seen move, but probably perfectly sound. The idea is fairly straightforward. White wants to play Bf4 but doesn't want to be embarassed by ...Nh5 so he makes an escape-square for the bishop.

Capablanca vs Reti, 1922, Janowski vs Reti, 1924

  blackcat7oo: What’s the point of the chaos in the middle game like 18.rxc6 and why did white never recapture on d2?
May-25-19  sneaky pete: 18.Rxc6 .. is a necessary prelude to 19.Nxe5 ..

18/19.Nxd2 Qg5+ wouldn't be a good idea.

Aug-08-19  sneaky pete: It's all a matter of move order. The proper mode of attack is 16... Bxd2 17.Nxd2 Bxh3

and black has won a pawn.

After 3.h3 .. one could hear Euwe thinking "I'm gonna get you for that" and he almost did.
