Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-09-06  prinsallan: 8. Ndb5 is not very solid defense.
In this case it is better to just cap the Knight with the Bishop since this is an obvious trap. No strong player would bring the queen out this early unless he has a strong attack or a trap.
Jan-09-06  prinsallan: Add to last post.

No strong player would bring the queen out this early unless he has a strong attack or a trap... At least not in front of the own King.

Sep-12-07  OBIT: Black's queen move is fine positionally. The queen on e7 does not block the Black bishop, since the bishop is going to g7 anyway.

8. Bg2 should give White a good game. If Black responds 8... Nxc4 (better is 8...Bg7, no doubt), then 9. Ndb5 d6 10. Qa4 Nb6 11. Nxd6+ Kd8 12. Nxc8 appears to be strong.

  FSR: Rather embarrassing; Iskov was one of the leading Danish players, probably somewhere in the vicinity of 2300-2400 at the time.
