  perfidious: If my memory doesn't fail me, it was Zsofia Polgar who played the Black pieces in this game, as part of her score of 8.5/9 in the event.

The line with 3....g6 is supposed to be dubious, but in 1993, I had a game with Kamran Shirazi in which he played ....Nh6, ....Nf5 and ....h5 and won after an interesting battle. Maybe the line isn't so bad after all, and I have a feeling that Shirazi's play offers more chances than the way this game went.

  perfidious: Time to try again: this game is incorrectly attributed to Zsuzsa Polgar, and Black was actually Zsofia.

  perfidious: <> A while ago, I followed your suggestion, without result.

Glad all is well now, and thanks!

  perfidious: This game was one of Black's wins in 'The Sac of Rome', as the-then fourteen year-old went 8.5/9 in this open, a performance which outshone any by her more renowned sisters in their open careers.

  FSR: You can't accuse Razuvaev of resigning too soon.

  perfidious: <FSR> If Razuvaev had had real grit, he'd have played on another couple moves or so.

  FSR: <perfidious> Real grit? Is that like <True Grit>?
