   Nov-04-09 M Vachier-Lagrave vs C Gervais, 2002 (replies)
JBCabell: How about this? I'm a little tired and not using a machine, but after 12..Nf8 13 Rxe7 Qxe7 14 Bf4 O-O-O 15 Bf5 it looks pretty ugly for black. It appears all white has to do is play g or h pawn up to avoid back rank mate and then get the center pawns going. i.e. 15..Nd7 g3 or ...
   Nov-29-08 Kmoch vs T Ellison, 1948
JBCabell: 7.Nxf6 Qxf6 8.Bd3 is correct and though a standard Tarrasch d4 trap, I see stronger players than me fall for it all the time. If 8...Bb4+ c3 9...Qxd4??? it's even more rewarding.

JBCabell: Yes, blacks weakness is the h5 square
   Jun-06-07 I Rogers vs G Welling, 1987
JBCabell: Well, 22..dxe4 rxd7 and black will start loosing pawns (with a horror for black after an exchange on f7). If black chooses instead to move the rook, then Nf6+, followed by Nxd7, and black will start loosing pawns.
   May-22-07 I Yarmonov vs M Larrea, 2006
JBCabell: 22. Kh1 and white threatens to take the rook. Other than that, it doesn't seem to be about much. If 22. QxR? white looses queen. A nice game.

JBCabell: I think 7...Nc6 was necessary for equality and to allow black to castle. For instance: 7..Nc6 8.Nf3 Bg4 etc, or 7...Nc6 8.Bxc6 bxc6 and black will be very happy when he sees he can play his bishop to either g4 or,if he's slick, to a6.
   Dec-16-06 I A Horowitz vs Chernev, 1944 (replies)
JBCabell: 13. a4 is pretty much a standard prophylactic move in the Schev., usually when when black plays Qc7. At a glance, it prevents an immediate b5 and impedes black's normal queenside development. Black could play b6, with the intention of putting the bishop on b7 (the ideal place for ...

JBCabell: There is a novel about Schlecter that has gotten great reviews. "Thomas Glavinic's first novel, Carl Haffner's Love of the Draw, is about chess, culminating in a ten-game tournament for the World Championship between the title character and Emanuel Lasker. Based on historical fact
