  PinkZebra: Does anyone have any comments on the possible (17)...f7-f5? Also the quiet moves like d7-d6 or f7-f6 and wait until white commits his remainning pieces.

  Honza Cervenka: I do not see any special advantage of 17...f5 for black in comparison with 17...g5. In fact after 17...f5 18.exf5 exf5 19.Nd5 white position does not look bad. 17...g5 gives black clear advantage.
Jan-23-03  ughaibu: I've noticed that J.Polgar is very fond of keeping her centre pawns and in particular the d-pawn, back. Perhaps she's a neohypermodern(?) or maybe she thinks that centre pawns get in the way of her attacking pieces.
