Jul-17-10  jerseybob: Whitehat: Or at least the wimpy version of it played by its inventor! What's with 7.Qh5 anyway? And earlier, I'm not crazy about 5.c4. 5.Bd3, keeping c3 in reserve, seems sounder to me.

  fredthebear: FTB wanted to play 30.Rd1 to pin the dark-squared bishop to the Black queen, but 30...Qd3+ nullifies that idea, winning the Rc2 next. The whole point of 29...Bd2 was to make the Rc1 move to any safe square, dissolving the defensive rook battery, and then comes the queen check-and-fork. 28...Kg2 was a necessary preparation to eliminate a rook-saving zwischenzug check.
