  FSR: Very fine play by Hyseni. It's hard to understand why 2.f3!! is not more often seen against the Sicilian.
Nov-21-11  King Death: This is some great play by White. He starts with the e4-f3-d3 triangle, then develops in true anti-Reinfeld style with Nh3 and Na3.
Aug-17-12  JCRchess: Interesting ideas for White, but why not continue development with 12.)O-O!
Mar-19-13  Conrad93: " Very fine play by Hyseni. It's hard to understand why 2.f3!! is not more often seen against the Sicilian."

Actually, it's very easy to see. It does nothing for white.

Oct-10-13  garrettfu5: <Conrad93> Don't defile <frs>'s joke please.
Oct-10-13  Calar: How did White manage to get his 1805 rating is a mystery to me. The way he developed reveals lack of understanding even much lower rated player should have.
Sep-08-14  Ke2: This is like the "Triangle Slav" but now applied to White!

  morfishine: This game should have an "asterik"
