  IMlday: 5.h3!? & 6.g4 I've never seen that before.
Apr-27-07  nummerzwei: I think thatīs saying something when you say that. I also doubt that 6...h5 is such a great move.It looks like black wanted to stop white from castling kingside, but that was just what he did straightaway and successfully.White simply massed his pieces on the kingside and gave shelter to his king this way, while preparing to attck his opponentīs one. It also appears to me that this 9...e5,10...exf4 and 13...d5 manoeuvre didnīt give black anything, but of course itīs quite difficult to respond correctly to a setup OTB that youīve never seen before.

  beenthere240: I was surprised by 15 de, thinking Nxe4 looked stronger. But getting a pawn on e4 was much better in the long run.
