  tpstar: <IBM> 21. g4!? Qf3?! 22. Re3 forces 22 ... Qf4/Qf6, then 23. gxh5 Rg5+ 24. Kf1 holds. Maybe 21. g4!? Qg6 22. Kh2 Nf4 and now 23. Ne2? Nxd5 or 23. Rg1 Qg5 24. Rg3 R8e7 with a bind. Black equalized pretty quickly here (like a Petrov with Nf6 & Bd6 plus a strong Pe4) so I prefer 3. ed e4 4. Qe2 = G Kramer vs G Primavera, 1950
