  Phony Benoni: Thou shalt not mix the Ruy Lopez and the Two Knights.
Aug-18-06  Snaeulf: Black's last two moves were the only mistakes.IMHO if Black play 7. ... Be6 or 8. ... Ne7 he hasn't got any problem
Jan-06-07  Karpova: 7...Be6 is no legal move
8...Ne7 9.Re1 Nfxd5 10.Qxd4 white is wide ahead in development.
Jan-07-07  Snaeulf: i kibitzed here long time ago, maybe i meant 7... Bd6 (black can't keep his extra pawn).However, d5 opens the e file, it was not such a good idea...
Jan-07-07  Karpova: 7...Bd6 8.Re1 and the threat of 9...e5 forces black to retreat the bishop. 7...Bc5 looks reasonable.

  sea7kenp: I think 6 ... Be7 would have been better.
