Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-25-05  aw1988: Good lord, this is still being played? 7...h6 is bad because of the pawn structure...
Apr-25-05  Dick Brain: It's not so bad. IIRC I lost a game to Randy Bauer way back when with such doubled pawn Rauser which depressed me so much that I learned and have used the Sozin Velimirovic ever since.
Apr-25-05  aw1988: Perhaps not bad, although certainly dubious.
Jan-11-06  sciacca khan: <aw1988> According to Chess Opening Explorer, if Black wants to win, it is a good option (says a limited amount of games).

  Jim Bartle: This was a 15-minute game in a three-way playoff for the women's title. It was described in an article by Paul Hoffman in Smithsonian, saying Shahade had tried to prepare for every possible line and "arrived at the board nervous and exhausted."
