Apr-24-06  PaulKeres: 13...Nb8!?, what is Black thinking here? Can anyone help me?
Apr-24-06  Shajmaty: <PaulKeres> The manoeuvre Nc6-Nb8 is common in the Ruy Lopez (e.g. Breyer variation). The Knight looks for a better post at d7 and lets the pawn in c7 promote to c5.
Apr-27-06  PaulKeres: thanks Shajmaty.
