Jan-22-18  Nic Olas: This seems to be an unusual line in the two knights. Never seen a game like this. Got here from the great chess24 write-up on Keres.
Jan-23-18  Retireborn: <Nic> Another interesting game in this line is

Salwe vs Marshall, 1908

Reinfeld analyzed this game in his Keres book, but I am not sure if it was him who recommended the blockading move 17.Be3 for White. After 17...e3! White's king has no refuge and he is close to lost already.
