Nov-04-07  RookFile: It's amazing, Pillsbury had this attack down to a science. Barry played pretty well, too.
Feb-25-19  zydeco: Yeah, it’s crazy how often Pillsbury’s opponents played into this line - and Pillsbury was just unbeatable with this thing. Barry does play pretty well. He preempts the usual kingside attack and then runs into the other problem in the QGD - the bad lightsquared bishop. After 37.d5! it’s over.

  nizmo11: 19. a3 was a tactical slip from Pillsbury: after 19...Qe6! 20... Nxf4 is awkward to meet. There seems to be no better continuation than settling for a draw with 20. Ng3 Nxf4 21. Qxe6 Nxe6 22. Nd7 Rf7 23. Ne5.
