  Benzol: Another bright little game.
Oct-01-03  AdrianP: <Benzol> This one looks pretty appallingly played by Black...!... although I agree that W had to play fairly energetically to justify the piece sac.

The position after 11. Nc3 is a pretty good illustration of when development is worth more than material!

  Benzol: These types of games were pretty much the way they played in those times.
