Sep-29-09  timhortons: the pawn at a6 is scary.

belgrade gambit by peter svidler, i wonder how many more among the meber tried to collect games on this opening.

Oct-14-09  belgradegambit: I do, (of course). Peter had lots of nice wins with the BG. On the FICS last night I beat someone who had 300 rating points on me by using the Belgrade Gambit!

  Mateo: Kogan missed 25...Qa5! with the threat Ba4+ as well as gxf4. At the same time the Queen would defend a7 and c7. White would lose a pawn.
