Oct-09-11  Robeson: White's 8.Bb5+ and 9.Bd7+ has to be one of the worst opening continuations in all of late 19th century chess. Chigorin was an incredibly strong and creative player but he wasn't nearly as good a strategist as his leading peers of the era, Steinitz, Em. Lasker, and Tarrascch.

You've led a sheltered life. And how do you feel about Tarrasch's ...Be7, ...Bf6, ...Be7, ...Bf8?
