Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-01-17  RookFile: I think 9....e6 is a little more common. Hort delays it and keeps Spassky guessing with his flexible play.
Sep-01-17  RookFile: I mean 9...Be6.
Sep-02-17  Arconax: The Hungarian Defense (3...Be7) is underrated. Black is very solid.
Aug-20-18  edubueno: En la jugada 12 las blancas están mucho mejor. 13 Af4! parece mucho mejor, especulando con f4 y f5 más tarde.
Aug-20-18  edubueno: Con el incorrecto plan de cambio del AR blanco por el más pasivo AD negro, la partida se achata y la ventaja de espacio de las blancas no influye.
