  Honza Cervenka: 28.Qh5?? is a grievous oversight, but after 28.g3 f4! 29.Bxf4 Qe4 30.gxh4 Qxf4 black has an advantage.
May-06-04  TrueFiendish: ...Qe4 conveys a tactic as simple as it is unusual, as evidenced by Marshall's missing it. I think if the h4 knight had been a d5 bishop he would never have missed it.
Apr-10-10  kjr63: Why is this called "old indian" opening? There is nothing old nor indian in this chigorin system. Rasism against the old indian players and their openings?
