Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-28-04  iron maiden: This is why I sometimes play 2. d4 against a Sicilian; hoping to reach a position like the one after 5. Nxc3. Of course 6...Be7?? was tragic, but in any case White has enough pressure for the pawn.
Mar-29-04  BiLL RobeRTiE: Other possible opening improvements were 3...a6! and 4...Nc6. Taking the pawn was bad but of course the losing move was 6...Be7??, as was already pointed out.
Sep-15-06  Chess Carnival: Ughh! Terror for Maddox's Sicilian! For a moment I thought this would be the author of Chessbase's CD "King's Indian Attack", but in 1933 he was probably trying to figure out how he would get into existence..

My first uscf-rated victory over an expert opened this way. My opponent varied with 7...d6 8. ♕xf7+ ♔d7 and
as I could not find a forcing line continued
9. ♕xg7 ♘f6 10. 0-0 ♔c7 11. ♗g5 ♔b8 12. ♗xf6 ♗xf6 13. ♕f7... when, with some difficulty, I exploited the undeveloped ♖a8 more than the extra pawn.

1-0 in 28.
Quite exciting for a class-B player.
