Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-09-03  Rookpawn: After 7... d6, Black has moved his Queen and his Bishop (both are in passive and inactive positions). White has castled, developed three minor pieces, and controlls the center, demonstrating the demerits of moving one's Queen too early.
Oct-25-04  waddayaplay: For some reason, the game Burn vs Tarrasch, 1889 is an exact duplicant of this one. I don't have Java and can't access the chessbase.com game databse, but someone else might be willing to do it and tell us what it says.
Oct-25-04  waddayaplay: I strongly doubt that Tarrasch would have played the Caro-Kann as early as 1889. He played it once in 1926 according to the chessgames.com database.
Jun-11-05  CiccioSPICE: You are right, waddy, there is not such a game on chessbase database! Maybe a mistake!
