  Chessical: <10,Ne2> is too passive a move, and Rubinstein gradually takes control. <Re1 and Bf4> is a more challenging set up for Black to face.

<25.Rg4> is conversely too aggressive, and Van Vleit has not got the tempi required to build up an attack.

He then blunders with <33.Rf3> losing another tempo to a back rank mate threat.

Jun-13-05  InspiredByMorphy: <Chessical> I agree 10.Ne2 is too passive. I like 10.f4 . I dont understand 12.Nxd7 . Why not leave the knight on its well guarded post?

  Chessical: <InspiredByMorphy> I agree, Van Vliet would have been better playing <12.Ng3> rather then giving up such a well posted N.

  OhioChessFan: White's 12th move is wrong in so many ways. At the least the d4 and e5 pawns would be left if Black initiated the exchange. White's 25th and 34th moves were complete wastes of time.
Oct-22-10  Thesaint8x: I agree Black's tension-releasing-for White is strange,since I have got this outpost in a tournament game where I got the better position by maintaining the knight though I subsequently could not convert advantage to victory. Black's 25th move( ! )centralizing the King is instructive if not decisive.
