May-18-03  ParanoidYoshi: Why 9...Kh7? I think 9...Nd4 Would be better for Black.
Jul-27-09  Knight13: 31...Rf7, ...Qc6, or ...cxb5 does not help Black.

<ParanoidYoshi: Why 9...Kh7?> Black's paranoid bout his h7 pawn and the a2-g8 diagonal potential pin. But Kh7 is not all that bad.

Aug-26-15  ColdSong: Harrwitz's dubious moves are,in my opinion,9...Kh7,which is at best a loss of time,13...g5,weakening the castle,14...Bd4,giving a good bishop for no obvious reason,15...Ng6,offering a7 (15...Nc6 seems correct),and 17...Nh5,offering b7 this time,and still no counterplay on the kingside for it.
