Dec-19-05  Bobak Zahmat: Against Anderssen one should castle early, to have a decent chance to score a full point or at least to draw to game.
Jun-22-06  apawnandafool: <bobak zahmat - against anderssen one should castle early> well said. i hope they follow your advice the next time they play him.
Sep-19-07  Tenderfoot: <apawnandafool> Actually, Adolf died, so that isn't possible. ahhh dang you got retorted on!!

  BishopofBlunder: It would seem that Amsterdam is the perfect place to play the Dutch Defense.

  Domdaniel: Van't Kruijs was perhaps the most original openings player of the 19th century. That useful move 1.e3 is named after him.

Pity about his middlegames.

Feb-13-14  yureesystem: I guess van't Kruijs try be like Steinitz, king in the the center but his approach is a bit unsound and give rook away doesn't help too.
