  IMlday: I don't like 7.0-0. Why wait for ..Be6 before playing Bxd5 as in Karjakin's game? 7.Bxd5 must be better (and Alekhine:) Also 9..0-0 seems inflexible. With White I would worry about 9..f5 and ..Qd7 leaving the ♔ placement open.
Nov-22-14  tranquilsimplicity: <IMlday> I am a club player but instantly or more accurately, intuitively felt that Black's Knight ought to have been eliminated instead of castling. I agree with you.

I might also add that since I have always gravitated towards the King's Gambit inspired by Chigorin, I favour Vienna-type (Nc3) positions including playing the Closed Sicilian as White. I learned a great deal from your games. Thank you. Long live the lineage: Chigorin - Bohatirchuk - Lawrence Day -Fedorov. I would throw myself in that lineage but I am not that good.#
