Sep-29-05  Poisonpawns: Crushing Counter attack and defense by the first World Champ.I can see why he became a strong defender,in the era of the attack,defense was like a dark secret which he mastered,and dominated his peers,until the next generation of masters caught on.Amazing how a great attacker like Andersson could not even leave a mark on blacks position here.Note the soundness of blacks position! the pawns the castle king and look at whites wrecked position after a wild attempt at an attack.
Jan-30-12  Knight13: <Poisonpawns> Yeah, Black became the one attacking, not White, in Evans Gambit! And 17. g4?? just ruins everything for White.
