Aug-17-04  Kaspy2: binding 'em for the first time in history
Oct-05-05  rjsolcruz: it was swiderski with the white pieces who played the c4 bind known as the maroczy bind against maroczy but it was later called as in the name of the latter and not swiderski bind. isn't that ironic and kind of unfair?
Oct-05-05  ughaibu: Maybe a mistranslation and it was actually the "Maroczy bound"?
Aug-07-07  r00723r0: Actually, Maroczy played against it here and became fascinated with the opening, playing it in many games, which is why they call it by his name.
Sep-13-07  amntony: This game showed us the best way to deal with something new for Black is to simplify the situation by exchanges :-)
Nov-08-09  desiobu: Levy & O'Connell's How to Play the Sicilian has 12. Qd2 in the score of this game which didn't make sense to me, so I had to check it here.
