Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-30-10  lefthandsketch: wow! is Ng5 a refutation of the so called "fort knox" rubinstein? sheesh. That knight move looks vicious!

  Domdaniel: No, Ng5 is not a refutation of the Fort Knox. But it is quite dangerous to an unprepared Black player.

  Domdaniel: The consensus opinion seems to be that after 6.Neg5 then 6...Bd6 is quite adequate for Black. But Black should avoid routine moves such as 6...Nd7.
