Apr-20-04  ruylopez900: This obviously wasn't the line that "refuted" the Center Game.

<Note "refuted" I know this isn't true, but it certainly has been proven that it is not an opening one choses if you want to keep the advantage as White.>

Aug-03-05  Knight13: 8. Bb4?? A logical move blunder.
Nov-26-05  DeepBlade: <Knight13> Yes, the move looks so natural.

I believe a good chessplayer must think of the consequences of its move for the other side. Well it eliminates getting traped.

May-17-09  whiteshark: Hanover 1902, Hauptturnier A, round 20; Aug 4, 1902

The tournament book noted that a certain <Mr. Mayer> played the same move (8...Bb4??) against Smith in round 14.
