May-24-05  aginis: the win isn't exactly clear but
20.Ba3 Bxa3 21.Rxa3 Ba6 and the d3 pawn falls.
Feb-14-06  schnarre: Hmmmnnnn...

I would have played 6. c3 instead of dxc5. Further, White's Qg3 only compunded the problem.

4...Ne7 should not cause White much difficulty, with even a modicum of preparation.

Jun-03-09  totololo: Maroczy adresses the issues from the start. The opening has the intention to bind Black on the black squares. So he reacts directly with Nc6 to break the bind ( control on central black squares). He can continue with Nd7,Qb6/a5,Bb4,... White eacted childishly .... he learn the moves but not the idea of the opening.
