Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-20-03  ughaibu: One for those vacillating over the choice of a sensible way to meet 1.e4
Oct-20-03  drukenknight: does 17 f5 help?
Oct-20-03  ughaibu: 17.f4(?), looks helpfull.
Oct-20-03  drukenknight: yes f4. Makes sense as a way to get the Q back into the defense and to open up the f file for attack.

It's funny, how many of us will never, under no circumstances move that f pawn? Of course it is the key to defending the K, but when circumstances change...

Sep-07-05  Snosko: I believe that 17. f4 is wrong, because black can reply 17. ... exf4 18. Qf2 Bxg3 19. hxg3 Te8+ winning.
Jun-27-13  whiteshark: To quote Anatoly Lein :

<The sequence that really hurts Black, however, is 4.Bb3 fxe4 5.Nc3>

("The Latvian Gambit - A Grandmaster View")

Black shouldn't grab of f3 now...
