May-02-04  mymt: surely 5.d4 instead of the usual 5.Be2 cant be bad, maybe its the follow up that needs improvement. eg.9.h5 Nxh5 10.Rxh5 Bxh5 11.Qxh5+ g6?12.Qe5+,or after 10...dxc4 why not QGAs 11.Bxc4? [ideas for another day] Nice combo 22....Nxg4. The Latvian s a good 2nd string in blitz.
Aug-13-04  Vischer: Why doesn't 5.Be2 just outright refute the latvian gambit?
Jul-03-13  pumping707: The power of Pins...I love pins........
Mar-31-15  Delboy: An interesting game, with odd symmetrical patterns at moves 15 and 20, a clever knight sac and two quiet but deadly queen moves to end it off

  MJCB: I play 2... f5 a lot in blitz. Allows playing the player, not his knowledge in traps on the opening. Nice to see it is played by more serious players than me!
