  An Englishman: Good Evening: What an attack. The obscure Neelov Yu (whose very name is a Valentine's Day Game of the Day pun) debuts 6...h6 in the Ulvestad Variation and overwhelms his opponent. 15...Black to Play would make a very good puzzle.

  ToTheDeath: Neelov Yu Long Time!
May-30-13  rogl: You gotta love white's nice development after his 15th move.

  sea7kenp: Why not 6 Bxb5, threatening the Queen Knight and, if 6 ... Nxd5, 7 Bxc6+ -- I think I like White's Position!
