Oct-23-06  notyetagm: In "Mastering The French With The Read And Play Method", Neil McDonald writes after 19 h6: "It's nice to have a plan".
Oct-24-06  who: Sokolsky entirely overvalues his queen in this game. His queen on e3 does nothing but spite check, whereas Geller's queen actually helps promote a pawn.
