Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-02-02  refutor: 4.a4! what an interesting idea by white to try and exploit black's move order
Dec-02-02  drukenknight: is 24 Rxe6 a better way?
Aug-21-10  Everett: With 3..Nb6!?, Alburt allows himself to play his QP two squares while stopping white from playing Bc4 for the time being, a line that is known to be very difficult for Alekhine players. Very interesting idea.

By move 15 white has created pressure on the dark-squares in black's camp and prevented black's K-side development. He clearly stands better...Any improvements for black may have to come before this point.

Apr-21-16  Howard: This was played in the 1990 NY Open.
