Feb-14-06  Ybrevo: 7. g4!? looks a bit too ambitous against a player like Dreev. Black punished it nicely.
Feb-14-06  euripides: Shariyazdanov was perhaps trying to test Dreev on the black side of a variation he plays as White: Dreev vs L Dominguez, 2005. In this game 9 g5 pushes the knight in the direction that it ultimately wants to go in. Perhaps White should exchange on d5 on moves 10 or 11. Allowing Nb4, Ne5 and c4 is asking for trouble.

Feb-23-06  LIFE Master AJ: 7.g4!? has been used by Kasparov ... and many others. Go to, pump in the moves, and hit search. (You get jillions of matches.)

I think <euripides> hit the nail on the head, White went wrong somewhere after move 7.

I (briefly) analyzed about 50 games today ... all in the effort of my "Game of The Month" column. ( This was one of the games that I looked at.

It would probably make an interesting web page ...
