Oct-25-16  Grbasowski: Is this the correct treatment of Falkbeer (by Chigorin)?
Oct-26-16  Christoforus Polacco: @ Grbasowski. It's doesn't matter :) Both sides changed theory. According with book : 3.. Bg4!? 4.Be2 ef 5.O-O (5.ed Nf6) de 6.Ne1 Qd4+ 7.Kh1 f3 8.gf Bh3 9.c3 Qb6 10.Rg1 Nf6 with equality. So... Chigorin was looking for advantage not equality :)

  fredthebear: In the final position (Black to move), White plans 25.Nf5 gaining time and clearing the way for 26.Qh6+. The fat lady is singing!
