Dec-08-04  shakespeare918: the very effective double check
Jul-25-05  Resignation Trap: Botvinnik in his red notebook: "French with Bb4, Bd2, Ne7 (not Nc6) - as played by Abram Y Model , Odessa. Exploited well White's queenside castling and gained a positional win. Very accurately moved back and forth, strengthening the position, and gradually won. Good exploitation of the opponent's pseudo-active play. And all the time 2-3 move tricks."
Aug-08-08  Everett: Reading Botvinnik's comments, and also the recent McDonald book on planning in the middle-game, I sense a smugness, a negative feeling, regarding having a plan only 2-3 moves deep. Kramnik says the same thing about Karpov's style. Is this really such a bad way to play for all of us, besides maybe the very best? My patzer opinion is that it is the ONLY way to play. Of course, one must take in to consideration the strategy of the pawn structures in either camp, etc., but to improve your pieces through small operations seems to make perfect sense. Worked for Capablanca, for crying out loud.
