Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-11-06  who: Alapin learned his lesson here and didn't try to be too fancy against Steinitz (Steinitz vs Alapin, 1898). Instead he played 6...Qe7.
Mar-12-09  YoungEd: Yes, 6. ...♕e7 has got to be much better; regaining the e-pawn is more important than going after the g-pawn. In this game, Black is pretty much busted by move 14, and it costs a pawn to free the ♗ that went to b4 on move 3.

  FSR: At first I thought 9...Bg4 was strong, but evidently White stays a pawn up with 10.Ng1!
Jul-25-12  nfwbyf: And nevertheless GM J,Hector repeaet this variation against P,Fransson in 1990, though Fransson played 7.d4 I suppose that Hector had also plan against 7.Nf3
