  geraldo8187: <chessgames>, you really need to upload dana's game against david pruess where he sacs the queen on the sixth move. afterwards, mackenzie annotated the line for Chess Life. apparently, he found that it was almost a refutation to the way fritz 9 plays

  cu8sfan: Hear him talk about winning against a GM by sacrificing the ♕ in the 6th move (just like in D Mackenzie vs D Pruess, 2006), and how it worked thanks to chess psychology on NPR's sports show "Only a Game" (

Jul-05-15  oddodddodo: Hi <cu8sfan>... Actually, in the NPR piece I *was* talking about the Pruess game, but the editing made it very unclear. I've since played the opening against GM Sergey Kudrin and drew from a winning position. However, the NPR interviewer was (understandably) not as interested in that. -- Dana Mackenzie
