Dec-04-02  Sylvester: 21. Nh6 is supposed to be great move with 21...Kh8 losing right away. Does that check out?
Dec-04-02  drukenknight: yes he's lost the B pair, a GM can see that it is all over.
Dec-04-02  PVS: Play 22. Nxf7+ and see what the position looks like.
Nov-02-10  Everett: Lombardy's pet move 10..c6 in the closed Ruy is remarkably untested.
May-22-13  jerseybob: Everett: 10..c6 was tested in this game, and it flunked. Gligoric, who later became mostly a 1.d4 player, plays the Lopez like a violin, and pinpoints exactly what's wrong with 10..c6.

11. ...Bd7 seems a little better - but there are very few games with Lombardy's move. It looks a bit suspicious and of course the chances of getting so deep into a Closed Lopez are smaller these days.
