Oct-27-09  vonKrolock: <6.d5> In R Grau vs Colle, 1930 followed more circumspectly 6.e3, later white won with a fulminating direct attack

<8.g3 ♘b4> This alternative sequence led once also to a quick white victory

<8...♘b4> Maybe black should try 8...♘e5!?

PS: Curious how the copy Alekhine vs Nenarokov, 1907 deserves more (partly sage, partly foolish) kibitzing than the original here on the screen
