Dec-20-07  dbquintillion: I think white could have safely resigned a bit earlier here.
Jun-15-09  totololo: I don't understand why you have such trash in the DB. It makes all statistics wrong....Selectivity , Timman was telling is very important for a good and reliable database.More then that , this is not the first trash game I found....

This game was a treat.

As in not.

Oct-01-16  RookFile: It's pretty amazing how often black has fallen for this Qb4+ and Qxf4 trick.
Oct-01-16  RookFile: If you're white and you want to avoid this nonsense, 3. Nc3 is a good and strong move. 1. d4 e5 2. dxe5 Qe7 3. Nc3 Qxe5 4. Nf3 Qa5 5. Bd2 is an example. It's more or less a Center Counter Defense where white gets more of a development lead than he usually gets.
