Jan-08-11  Ulhumbrus: The capture 8 dxe5 together with the outcome of the game- a win for White- suggests playing the capture ...dxe4 if White plays the King's Indian attack against the French defence eg 1 e4 e6 2 d3 d5 3 Nd2 and either now or later the capture....dxe4. Black lost after having played this capture all the same in the game Fischer vs Ivkov, 1966. However in that game Black castled on the King side.

  Ziryab: Black could have won this game with 21...Ra1+! or even 22...Ra1+!

Alexander Kotov's prescription that calculation is necessary in conducting an offensive with castling on opposite wings thus undermines his analysis of this game in The Art of the Middle Game.
