Apr-09-04  admeyer: It is interesting to note that DeFirmian, a reknown openings expert (author of MCO), specializes in this for black.

  Jim Bartle: I'm sure there are many examples of opening the center for the rooks with moves like 12....Nf6, but a great one that sticks in my mind is Portisch-Pinter 1984. In that game the white king was already out at e3 and was chased over to its demise at g3, in front of its pawn "shield."
Nov-17-05  Inf: wow 12.Nf6 is a killer move, and i read somewhere that granda had an impresive lack of openning acknowledge. i think he could've been well over 2800+

  Jim Bartle: I don't know about 2800, but yes, Granda is (or at least used to be) known for his improvisational opening play. He only got his first computer and database a couple of years ago, when a Peruvian company gave him one.
Jan-28-06  SickedChess: I hear that Granda actually use his computer for chat and for watch few chess games online but never to training or work in openings. He worked in opening for Corus 2003 the result was three loses in the first three games! Then you can understand why Granda dislike his notebook :)

Nov-28-06  littleshiva: Hey this is one of his best games !

  Jonathan Sarfati: Interesting that Black basically ignored the fact that he was a P down and just developed. 12... Nf6 was a cute tactic (taking it allows mate in 2), but then it was just continuing to bring his pieces into play. 21. Rxh5 lost the exchange by force, and also allowed the deadly first-rank pin.
