Jan-20-07  wolfmaster: When Cochrane can get into tactical and sacraficial openings, he's a tough opponent.

  al wazir: I think that after 10...dxc4 11. Rxf7 Bxf7 12. d5 Bc5+ 13. Kh1 Ne7 I would rather have black.
Jan-23-07  Cyphelium: <al wazir> Possibly the slower approach 10.- dxc4 11. ♖xf7 ♗xf7 12. ♕g4!? is the way to play for white, for example 12.- ♘c6 13. c3 and then developing the bishop and the rook before advancing the central pawns.
Feb-27-07  zb2cr: I don't get it. Why not 14. ... Qxd5? Black's two pieces ahead and swapping the Queen makes White's attack stagger.
