  Eggman: Black's blunder here (4...Be7? was bad, 5...dxe5?? worse - Black could have gone in for 5...Nxe5 6.Nxe5 dxe5 7.Qh5, when he loses a pawn but can play on) is indicative of our reliance on familiar themes: after all, how often can a Queen even reach d5 in the opening, let alone do so with such devastation?

Another thing that occurs to me when I see a game like this: pity that Boileau, a master, couldn't have given this gift to a 1700 player.

Jul-11-10  zanshin: Yes, <4...exd4> was better - not a good opening by Black to say the least.
