Nov-25-04  Bobak Zahmat: 5.Bd2 is not good move I think. I prefer 5.Bc4 or chosse for fianchetto king's side by playing 5.g3
Dec-29-04  Bobak Zahmat: 8.Be2 is lose of tempo. Instead of it white should play Qe2 and after 8. ... 0-0-0 white has still to play 9.Be3 and white must castle long by his tenth move! After that the position should still be equal.

  Phony Benoni: 8.Qe2 simply loses material to 8...Nxd4. If there's a culprit here, it's probably the natural 7.Bc4. The usual sequence is 7.Nb5 Qb6 8.c4 when Black's queen can find herself awkwardly placed.

Once Black's queen gets to h5, the game soon disintegrates into a horrible example of what inaccurate play can do to White in the Scandinavian.

  perfidious: <Phony Benoni> That line leads to the forcing sequence (after 8.c4) 8....Bxf3 9.Qxf3 Nxd4 10.Nxd4 Qxd4 11.Qxb7 Qe4+ 12.Qxe4 Nxe4 13.Be3 which produces a clear advantage: the bishop pair on an open board, plus Black's weak queenside. Small wonder White has scored heavily from this position.
