Apr-06-10  Badmojo: Check out this vintage tour de force by the Italian whirlwind Vocaturo. Only 16 at the time he completely destroys a 2600+ GM.

Does anyone know when they left the theory?

Apr-06-10  Badmojo: White's dark square bishop absolutely controlled the game after 14. Bxb4. Stunning game.
