Nov-04-03  PizzatheHut: You gotta love this opening.
Nov-04-03  karnak64: This game shows why I like this guy's games. The opening he plays and the position he achieves seems benign, then he comes out of nowhere with something like 10 b4. I don't have the instincts to play such moves, even if I see their availability.

  Eggman: Suttles was the most successful of a few Canadian players of the 70s (IM Lawrence Day being another) who made a career from irregular openings.
Jun-20-05  lentil: some people call 1. g3 the Benko opening. ironic.
Jun-20-05  aw1988: There are in fact numerous examples of players being defeated playing against their own ideas.
Aug-17-05  mack: <some people call 1. g3 the Benko opening. ironic.> About as ironic as rain on your wedding day.

  hesyrett: In the game of Go there's a term "gote na sente", meaning an apparently passive reply containing a hidden threat. Suttles was really good at that. I flatter myself that I might have played 10 b4 (ref. karnak64's comment above), but never in a million years would I have found 21 Bc1!

  Benzol: 27.Nd5 Ouch, but this would have been a great game to have witnessed as a spectator.

  IMlday: <Benzol> That whole tournament would have been a spectator's delight. The organizers emphasized creativity in the styles of who they invited.

  Benzol: <IMlday> Was it this Hastings Tourney that also included Tal and Vaganian among the competitors or was that the following year?
