Jun-11-05  Whitehat1963: Blind, it may have been, but the Player of the Day effectively uses the Opening of the Day against a very formidable opponent and comes up with the win.
Aug-25-12  mistreaver: How should White play after 9... Be7 (instead of Bd7) to answer g4 with Nh4. Is it acceptable to push play b5 in order to develop queenside pieces?
