|Dec-15-10|| ||GrahamClayton: "When making his eighth move, the Bostonian studied intently upon the position, and before he had his mind made up as to how to proceed he had wasted a full three-quarters of an hour. It was a position where there are many pitfalls in this dangerous defence, and Barry was over-cautious.|
This loss of time was in itself a heavy handicap, and as he had an uphill fight on his hands for the entire day, his plight may well be imagined."
Boston Evening Transcript, April 26, 1904.
|Mar-13-13|| ||Phony Benoni: After 21.a3, White has a hole on b3 which Black's queen decides to use as a summer vacation home. Three times she pops in, and three times White has to reorganize his position to kick her out with Nd2.|
In the end the queen has the final word, though she has to die to get it in.
|Mar-13-13|| ||OhioChessFan: Kind of cheesy for White to engage in the series of spite checks at the end.|
|Mar-13-13|| ||Phony Benoni: It was round 1. The players still had excess nervous energy to work off.|
|May-11-15|| ||jerseybob: Phony: 21.a3 seems forced. The move that really ruins white's q-side is 18.c3, allowing the quick Nc5/d3. Tough to choose a better 18th move for white though; since he's lost so much time in the early part of the game black already has a domineering position. Maybe 18.a4!?|
