Apr-08-05  paladin at large: Look at the razzle-dazzle from these old warhorses! How about Chigorin's 13. 0-0-0 into the teeth of "Black Death"'s attack! Chigorin coolly carries out a kingside attack....
Apr-08-05  chess man: I had just studied 2.Qe2 in the French yesterday. However, 2...b6 is not the best way to respond. In the different variations that I've studied Black can gain an advantage with different moves, or the game can be roughfly equal.
Apr-08-05  paladin at large: <chess man>Blackburne loved to get off the beaten path.
Apr-08-05  chess man: Yes he did and I love watching his games.
Dec-10-07  tatarch: Great dueling attacks-- this is a prime GOTD candidate
