Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-18-04  Gurch: White wins 75% of the time...? I think the database needs a few more games with this opening to even the statistics out a bit.
Feb-18-04  Kenkaku: chessgames.com, the algebraic line given under the opening name is incorrect.
Feb-18-04  karlzen: Yes you're both correct that it's all wrong, besides they have two exact same Smyslov-Ragozin and two Polugaevsky-Kapengut!
