Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-24-04  Jesuitic Calvinist: A good example of Hector's "hectoring" style, although admittedly against a player rated 500 points below him.

White probably hoped for a quiet game and a draw, but Hector's 2...e5 gave white some problems to solve right from the opening.

Mar-08-05  Rocafella: I think this is also a great second move e5, very attack minded, great game :)
Jul-02-05  Brown: 4.Nb5 is worth a look. If 4...c5, than 5.a4 with white having a nice outpost at c4 after Na3. Further, e3 looks like a good counter-counter gambit, with quick development for white.
May-15-06  AniamL: I'd say white needed SMarder execution.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: I'm not sure I would have been able to avoid the temptation of playing 3.e4!?, against which Hector probably had something like 3...c5!? ready.
Jun-09-08  GreenCastle: Interesting to note that Jonny Hector play the Veresov for White. This 2..e5 business is curious. 4.Nb5 Nc6 5.Nf3 Bc5 6.Bg5! followed by c3 is already better for White.
Mar-03-10  rhedrich: The outcome had nothing to do with the unusual opening. The game was actually equal until white traded away his last bishop.

"johnny Hactor play" should be "Johnny Hector plays"

English lesson:

I play
You play
He,she, or it plays

we play
you (pl) play
they play

A peculiarity of English.

Oct-26-13  fokers13: wonder if 25.e6 with a threat of Bh7-Nxg7-Nxe6+ would have been any better.

the rook and extra kingside pawns should reasonably maintain the equilibrium vs the 2 knights.

Nov-29-17  schnarre: ...Good Queenside play by Black.

...Haven't seen much of 2...e5 (I usually see 2...e6 or 2...Nf6--on rare occasion 2...Bf5). 4.Nb5 looks much stronger for White in pretty much all the analysis presented!
