Nov-30-04  Hidden Skillz: it always amazed me how keres exploited very aggressive positions so quickly..no disrespect but korchnoi had nothin to offer here
Mar-23-07  Robotnik: The move 12. c5 opens the hunt on the black queen and so 11th move of Black underestimates the danger!!!
Apr-03-07  Ulhumbrus: Instead of 8...Na5, 8..Ne5 may give Black a good game.
Nov-16-11  Whitehat1963: Excellent Thursday/Friday puzzle after 19. Bxc3.

  kingfu: These are the 2 best players to never be Champion.

Only Matulovic can play 7...Nc6 in the Leningrad Dutch and not get hammered. I guess that is why they named the variation after him!
