Feb-11-04  kutuzov: What a slaughter! Rc8 was a terrible mistake! And against Tal!
Feb-11-04  clendenon: Juan Bellon was just a kid when he pplayed this. now hes a GM.
Feb-11-04  Phoenix: Bellon also has a gambit named after him. 1.c4 e5 2.♘c3 ♘f6 3.♘f3 e4 4.♘g5 b5. It can lead to very interesting play, but it is just bad after 5.d3! exd3 6.cxb5! dxe2 7.♗xe2
Feb-25-06  dakgootje: <Juan Bellon was just a kid when he pplayed this. now hes a GM.> Uhm he was like 20, so not really a kid anymore when he was slaughterd here
Feb-25-06  slapwa: I'm not sure Rc8 was the significant mistake. If 6 ..., Qd7(orQd6) 7. exd5, Qxd5 8. Ne5 is still very powerful. Wasn't 5. ..., d5 the problem?
Feb-25-06  dakgootje: Think the problem was mainly black 3rd move b6, as its the only game in the database with that move, so little chance it was a good move.
