Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-20-03  rochade18: White should play Be2 before x-ing the pawn on f4!
Aug-24-07  wolfmaster: Yes <rochade18>, rather than playing 8.Bxf4, Be2 would have been much more sensible.

  FSR: "Rather" weak, especially for a correspondence game.
Mar-28-09  WhiteRook48: I'd rather not play 8 Bxf4
Jan-17-11  BLarsen1967: I'd rather play 8.Bd3. This is what Rubinstein did in a game from 1921 (must admit,I was a little shocked to see Akiba R. playing 1.e4,he was such a 1.d4 enthusiast!) -- That game continued with 8..g5,but in case Black wants to avoid the traditional KGA set-up he can play something like 8..O-O. Yet after 9.Bxf4 c5 10.Qe2 Nc6 11.Be4 Qd8 12.d5 White might be a little better

  whiteshark: I rather enjoyed his first gambit.
