  khense: 5. NC3 clever move. If Q X f4, N D5
Feb-24-06  alexandrovm: interesting, if 5. ...QxB then white can answer with Nd5 attacking the queen and c7
Jun-17-07  TheaN: That would still turn into two pieces for a rook, as, with careful play, Black will pick up the knight. Although Black lost his castling right, he should be able to win that. Qxf4 is probably the best move. Qxb2 is not bad here, but I just dislike hitting at b2/g2/b7/g7.
Jun-17-07  Poisonpawns: 4.Bf4?! is not the best move,Lopez just outplayed a 2000 rated player.Korchnoi`s move 4.Nc3 basically refutes this opening.Any analysis can be found in a good book on the opening
Jan-17-08  KingG: <Poisonpawns> <4.Bf4?! is not the best move,Lopez just outplayed a 2000 rated player.Korchnoi`s move 4.Nc3 basically refutes this opening.> I don't know, 4.Bf4 seems pretty convincing to me. What is Black's best line after this move?

  Infohunter: Black may well have thought it was "in the bag" when he played that family fork at his 27th. Oops!
Jan-05-19  The Kings Domain: Fun opening and good game, more grandmasters should widen their opening repertoire.
Jan-05-19  birimbombum: Yep! Qxf4 is the best move. Indeed.
Jan-05-19  Ironmanth: Wild game to start the weekend; thanks chessgames!
Jan-05-19  jinkinson: But not 5. Qd2?? Qxb2 and Black wins (this actually happened to me in an online game once, embarrassingly enough).
