Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-20-04  d4Nf6Bg5: do you think black came out of the opening with an advantage or disadvantage?
Jan-20-04  InspiredByMorphy: Black has a definite advantage. Whites pawn grab in the opening ( an amateurish move ), leaves him with a crippled King side, giving the pawn back, and no King side castling rights. Usually black plays 4.dxc6 from the games Ive seen. Its almost as if Schlecter tests Marco on whether he would grab the e pawn, because what does bxc6 do for black if white doesent take the pawn? dxc6 at least frees the c8-g3 diagonal, and the d-file for the queen. But, I dont doubt Schlecters skill, and Im sure he had something ready if white didnt take the e pawn.
Jan-22-04  d4Nf6Bg5: another game where Marco grabs the e pawn. I guess he didn't learn his lesson!

  profK: I would think white runs off the rails later. At move 12 I would be happy to play white.
Jan-07-12  King Death: <profK> There's long term danger in this position for White by move 12. His e and f pawns may easily become weak and he gave up the two bishops for not very much. It's hard for White to find a good plan because any opening of this position may turn against him in spite of his advantage in space.

  fredthebear: When Schlechter opens lines, he controls them thereafter. Black penetrates and threatens; his own king is in no danger. Typical Schlechter pressure.
