Aug-12-07  patzerboy: Knights on d6. Knights on d6. Knights on d6.
Say it fast. Say it slow. Sat it any way you want.
Knights on d6 RULE (when properly supported).

Petrosian dropped a Knight onto d6 on move 16. A White Knight REMAINED on d6 for every one of the subsequent 25 moves of the game.

Nov-27-10  xombie: VERY sneaky. Probably a low quality game by Byrne, but we never know.

8. Qc2 was a sly move. Perhaps Byrne should have been watchful for the discovered attack that later occurs. But maybe 11 .. b5 was the culprit here, after which 12 ... Qb6 was nearly forced, unleashing the sequence that follows, each of which is a little tactical jolt. Bc7 was a good shot but I am not sure it was very obvious what to do after that ... We do see, however, that all the moves that happen are natural and forcing.
