Aug-31-05  hamworld: this game is pretty good . even though i'm not good on endgames i still wonder why white resigned would anyone like to tell me why
Premium Chessgames Member White didn't resign, Black resigned! White wins easily by pushing the g-pawn, willing to sacrifice the rook for the b pawn if necessary.
Sep-16-05  Holden: Wow, the Mokele Mbembe! I saw an article on on this variation of Alekhine's defense. Cool to see a strong player try such an unusual variation.

I see this opening sometimes on FICS or Yahoo. I like 3. d4 in response to 2. ... Ne4, but I'm no master.
