Jul-11-05  davewv: Example of Levenfishing in "Secrets of Sicilian Draagon" by Schiller and Gufeld. page 52
Dec-28-07  apexin: Interesting game.after mistakes from the opening by Rabinovich white had a clear advantage because of isolated d6 pawn and more active pieces.

  parisattack: The first example of the Levenfish variation (6. f4)?
Sep-09-13  Strongest Force: Levenfish was very strong for a guy that had "fish" as part of his name. Whatever.

  perfidious: <SF>: Two years before, Leven (not a fish) had enough left in the tank to draw a match with Botvinnik, a man who already had been tipped as a possible world champion.
