  perfidious: In a game A Shaw-Moskow, New York 1992,
I played this line instead of 10.Ncxd5 and won, though not getting anything from the opening. No surprise to me now, really; I don't believe 8.Nf4 gives White much and the only reason I played it was that I liked Black's dynamic chances after 8.d5 exd5 9.cxd5 Bc5. Adorjan has some interesting lines in his book 'Black is OK'.
Aug-28-09  WhiteRook48: why is 10 Nfxd5 such a novelty?
Apr-18-15  RookFile: Looks to me like Keres had no trouble in this game, and Capa had to play carefully, in order not to lose.

  perfidious: <RookFile> As I noted some years after my previous kibitz (at Granda Zuniga vs E Moskow, 1992), were I to be in this position before White's eighth move, Granda's idea would at least have the virtue of livening the play more than the dull game continuation.

  Messiah: Decent play by Keres, Capa had practically no chance to do anything dangerous.
