Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-21-04  solstys: Nice move by Winants. If RxR, then Qd1#. If Nf3, then Qc4+ wins the rook.
Nov-21-04  molinov: I recently faced 5.... f5 as White and it seems to me that this line is quite good for black.Is there anything that prevents players from using this line?
Aug-17-07  refutor: <molinov> similar to the marshall (where Black can only get away with playing ...d5 becasue White has played c3, taking that square away from his knight), Black can only play this line after 5. c3. If 5.O-O instead you can avoid this line of play
