  An Englishman: Good Evening: Horowitz was quite fond of this game, which pretty much busted 5...Bg4 back in 1935, and even today it's a variation which still takes a pretty hard beating.
Feb-27-13  David2009: I A Horowitz vs F Kibbermann, 1935 Impressive play by Horowitz. 11...Qd7 instead of 11...Qd8 gives a flicker of hope: if 12.Ne5 Qd8 whilst if 12.Qe2 as in the game Bg6 13.Nd6+ Kd8 and b7 is protected. Of course White can continue 14.Nc4 to reach

but at least Black has his extra Pawn as a buffer.

Feb-27-13  RookFile: This is a lousy opening for black in general. Basically, white's task is to keep pieces on the board. If he can do that, he has all the attacking chances in the world, and can take all day about it too. The only thing black gets to do is crouch in a defensive shell and trade pieces when he can. If you're keen on an early d5, just wait one move and play c6 and d5 instead. You get a much better version of these setups.
