Aug-12-04  InspiredByMorphy: What a game! Black allows white to get a better position after 5. ... e5 . Perhaps the simple 5. ... cxd5 is better ?
Nov-16-04  Lucky1: There is too much happening from move 24 on.

  vonKrolock: <5...e7-e5> Niemann's own, at least in the registered practice - mixed results in later tries by other players, like in this lively brazilian game

[Event "BRA-ch+"]
[Site "Sao Bernardo"]
[Date "1968.??.??"]
[Round "1"]
[White "Vasconcellos,Fernando"]
[Black "Gadia,Olicio"]
[Result "1/2"]
[Eco "A00"]
1.g4 d5 2.Bg2 Bxg4 3.c4 c6 4.cxd5 Nf6 5.Nc3 e5 6.dxe6 Bxe6 7.Nf3 Be7 8.b3 Nd5 9.Nxd5 Bxd5 10.Bb2 Na6 11.0-0 0-0 12.d3 Bxf3 13.Bxf3 Bd6 14.Bg2 Qh4 15.f4 Bxf4 16.h3 Be3+ 17.Kh1 Nc7 18.Rf5 Ne6 19.Qe1 Qh6 20.Qb4 Rad8 21.Raf1 Rd5 22.Rxd5 cxd5 23.Qxb7 Nf4 24.Qd7 f5 25.Bxd5+ Kh8 26.Bg2 Qg6 27.Qc6 Nxe2 28.Qxg6 hxg6 29.Rd1 Bd4 30.Ba3 Re8 31.Bf3 Nf4 32.Kh2 Re3 33.Kg3 g5 34.Bc1 Ne2+ 35.Kg2 Nxc1 36.Rxc1 Rxd3 37.Rc2 Be5 38.Rc5 1/2

<Perhaps the simple 5. ... cxd5 is better ? > then with 6.♕b3 the game could follow a line given by Grob himself : 6...e6 7.♕xb7 ♘bd7 8.d4 ♖b8 9.♕xa7 ♗d6 10.♕a6 ♖b6 11.♕d3 etc

Jul-25-18  Whitehat1963: Stockfish says: -1.39 (20 ply) 5...cxd5 6.Qb3 e6 7.Qxb7 Nbd7 8.Nb5 Rc8 9.h3 Bh5 10.Nf3 Bc5 11.Nfd4 Ne5 12.b4 Bxb4 13.f4 Nc4 14.O-O Na5 15.Nc7+ Qxc7 16.Qxb4 Nc6 17.Nxc6 Qxc6
Jul-25-18  Whitehat1963: Stockfish thinks 19...Rad8 is the losing move. It suggests: 19...Nc4 20.bxa5 g5 21.Nfe2 Nxa5 22.Ng3 Nh6 23.Kg2 f6 24.d5 Rad8 25.Nge2 Nc4 26.Nd4 Rc8 27.h3 Kf7 28.Nf3 g4 29.Nd4 gxh3+ 30.Kxh3 Ne5 31.Re1 cxd5. +0.71 (21 ply) White is still ahead, thatís when it all starts to fall apart.
