  patzer2: When I first saw the move 6...Ne8, I wondered if it was an error or a joke, as it violates just about everything I've been told about development in the opening (e.g. avoid moving developed pieces twice etc.). Yet, Taimanov (who appears to have originated the move) played it twice more for wins against strong competition in J Donner vs Taimanov, 1961 and V Mikenas vs Taimanov, 1967
Jan-12-04  ughaibu: Ne8 in this opening is reputed to be an idea of Capablanca's, it's normally played when the pawn advances from e3 to e4 in anticipation of Bg5.
