Jul-07-02  refutor: the 9. ... Nd5 line is absurd at best and losing at worst methinks :)

  AgentRgent: I don't know refutor.. Black seems to be in this until 19...c5 I think that's the losing move.. I think either shoring up the pawns with a6 or developing would be better.
Dec-04-02  drukenknight: he looks fine until the 18th move. at this pt. his only hope seems to be in using tempo since white has more space, due to pawn connections.

HE has the move but white has space advantage.

Piece material is dead even perhaps trading material down will allow black to improve his position and improve positional aspects.

Since he has the move he might as well start by checking: 18...Qg3+ 19 Kd2 then: c5 19 axb4 cxd4 then what exd4 exposing the K to another check
