Jul-06-04  Theoryhack: So easy to miss this type of thing in a variety of openings. When an opponent plays bf5, you need to have your Nb4 sensors on full alert...
Aug-04-04  sneaky pete: Poor Pytel! White's moves 7, 8 and 9 is (or should I say are?) the most pathetic trio I've ever seen. I'll baptize this The Three Stooges defence against the Boa Constrictor.

  tpstar: Clever, but the real culprits were White's moves 5 and 6. 5. Nge2?! misplaces the KN on e2 and blocks the KB, then 5 ... Bf5 develops with a threat (6 ... Nb4). So White had to defend against that threat with 6. Ng3 or 6. a3 or even 6. Nf4 Nb4 7. Nd3 would have worked, but 6. g3?! lost to 6 ... Nb4 since after 7. g4 (best was 7. Nf4 Nxc2+ 8. Kd2 Nxa1 9. Bd3 at least getting the Na1 out of it) Bxc2! White loses the Queen (8. Qd2 Nd3+) or else a piece and then the Queen (8. Bg5 Qxg5 9. h4 Qd8 10. Qd2/Qc1 Nd3+). A perfect example of how the French Exchange helps Black = the Bc8 gets out for free.

  kevin86: White has three kinds of choices-all bad:10♕ to b1,d3,xc2-allows for direct capture.

♕c1 ♘d3+ forks ♕ & ♔

♕d2 ♘d3+ forces 11♕xd3. in all three cases,the queen is lost!!

  Domdaniel: As <tpstar> said (10 years ago), 5.Nge2 is dubious. In fact it's horrible -- hard to imagine anyone playing it in a 'normal' Exchange French with 3.exd5 exd5. But the 'irregular' sequence after 3...Nc6 causes White to try a dubious experiment. I've seen this (psychological?) effect in the French myself. I've won games against strong players with such moves as 3.Nc3 Nc6, 3.Nc3 a6, and 3.Nd2 b6. Some White players either push too hard trying to refute a supposedly inferior move, or feel that one innovation deserves another.
