Jan-15-06  Drifter: horribly symmetrical.
Jan-15-06  morpstau: Het DRIFTER, when Capa. chose the four knights you know its going to be a boring and like you said symetrical game.Thats Capa.s style and if Marshall was not as a great a player Jose would have pounced on any mistake made on the part of the second player.(10.kh2 was very interesting and provocative but Marshall rose to the occasion with the strong reply 10...h6 kicking the bishop and than 11...d5! counterattacking the center to foil whites flank attack, textbook play by Frank Marshall!
