Aug-30-04  Knight13: Another great game!
Dec-22-08  Toadspring: 1. d3 is The Mieses Opening
It is named after the German-British grandmaster Jacques Mieses. Seems kinda passive, huh?
Dec-22-08  WhiteRook48: 1. d3 looks good to beginners cause the pawn is at the edge of the board. Beginners tend to play 1. d3, 1. h4, 1. a4, and 1. Nh3
Jan-28-09  waustad: The dark squared weaknesses white inflicts upon himself are shocking.

  Domdaniel: 1.d3 is an excellent transpositional device. Here it leads to a Bird/ Reversed Dutch.

  Domdaniel: Rather than 24.g5, allowing the black knight to f5, I prefer 24.Rxh6.
