Jun-14-14  Howard: Rogoff and Commons were close friends back in the 70's (and about the same age), and in the 1978 championship, they both decided to try the Center Counter....but they both suffered "smashing defeats" from it, as Chess Life and Review put it.
Jun-22-17  Howard: CL&R mentioned that 10.d5! was just the kind of move that Christensen was known for back then.
