  jtd200: Actually, after 8.Qd2, white's not too badly off... 8.Bd2 was the important error.

  Xeeniner: 8. Qd2 Qe5 still looks like trouble; for example 9. f3 Nxe4 10. fxe4 Qxg5. Or am I missing something?

  Xeeniner: Never mind. The queen's defending the bishop.
Aug-18-08  reztap: This game was played in Cleveland,ohio. The winner was a Tom Ellison who I personnally knew.
Nov-29-08  jerseybob: Reztap: You mention Ohio players of the late-40's. Whatever became of Larry Friedman?
Nov-29-08  JBCabell: 7.Nxf6 Qxf6 8.Bd3 is correct and though a standard Tarrasch d4 trap, I see stronger players than me fall for it all the time. If 8...Bb4+ c3 9...Qxd4??? it's even more rewarding.
