Apr-01-05  Milo: 10...g6 11.Bc4 tho, right?
Apr-01-05  Milo: I don't know if 8.Na3 is actually winning, but it looks like a rock-crusher of a move.
Apr-20-05  hintza: 8.Na3 has apparently been suggested by kibitzer IM Lawrence Day.
Apr-20-05  Shams: this game makes a big impression; where is black's improvement? 9...Qd8 10.Bf4 looks good enough for white. maybe 6...d6 and go for a dragon setup?
Apr-20-05  aw1988: Oooops! Qxd6 Ba3 traps the queen. Ouch.
Apr-20-05  Milo: aw: as has been noted, improvements are hard to find for black...
Feb-02-06  capanegra: That Queen can't stay in the middle of the board allowing "developing attacks" by white pieces. I think 9Qd8 followed by a6-Nf6-Be7 is an improvement, and we come into a classic gambit position, were White must exploit his extra space in order to compensate the Pawn.
