May-20-09  Manuel G. Vergara: The game will explain itself, that this Filipino GM So is a ressurection of Bobby Fischer!
May-20-09  shintaro go: <Manuel G. Vergard> Maybe, but as of the moment, we need to see more consistent results from the chairman.
May-20-09  Libispusher: 6...e6 is seldom seen in grandmaster play as it tends to restrict the LSB in certain variations much like in the game.

I find this strangely similar to So-Ni (Olympiad 2008) where by coincidence on both games White played <11.Ne4!?> somewhat in disregard of opening principles (i.e. piece development), but perhaps compelled by some reason that the move is what the position dictates.

Not surprising to see such disposition from players with a knack for attack, looking for early imbalances.
