  McCool: 4. ..a6?? That was a blunderful move.
Aug-14-06  Kwesi: 4...a6 was still theory, but the time wasting kingside fianchetto was probably a bad idea.
Dec-11-06  mrjoshherman: it seems that ... Ne7 is a dangerous move in the sicilian.
Sep-04-08  TheTamale: I just don't get ...a6 in the Sicilian. 1) ...c5 isn't really a developing move to begin with; I never understood throwing in ...a6 soon thereafter.
Feb-08-12  soberknight: You just don't expect to lose your queen this quickly.

  whiteshark: At this point it must be said that <8...Nbc6> shortens Black's misery considerably.

  perfidious: <Kwesi: .....the time wasting kingside fianchetto was probably a bad idea.>

After the commonly played 5.Bd3, 5....g6 is actually a playable alternative to, inter alia, 5....Bc5; but I am not so sure about Black's fifth move in this game.
