Jun-10-09  Hugh the Drover: Keres makes a series of plies, and Gauffin in the coffin now lies.
May-20-11  Grandpa jo: I think 4..bxa3! is the best followed by a scheveningen structure (...d6, ..e6) Its solid as a rock for black)
May-20-11  Grandpa jo: Remark. 5 of the 16 first moves for black was a queen move in an open position...ahhh
Oct-14-14  bengalcat47: This game can be found in Reinfeld's book Great Short Games of the Chess Masters. I've noticed that quite a few games from this book are not in the database here.

  GrahamClayton: 10. Ra5 is an unusual but effective way to harass the Black queen.
