  Calli: Heh, tech draw is translating the German name. Gotthilf is "Godhelp" in english.
Dec-12-03  Lawrence: In both the 25.Qc3 dxe2 and 25.exd3 Nd4 lines Junior 8 shows an advantage of over 5 pawnsworth for Black.

Little know-it-all Junior says that 17.....a5 was not necessary, Qb7 would have been even better.

  plang: 5..c5 is rarely played any more due to 6 d5. After 6 dxc Black is close to equality already. 10 Nd2, 12 Qa4 and 13 Nb3 lost time achieving simplifying exchanges but at much too great a cost allowing Black to develop a powerful center.
