  ganstaman: Any thoughts as to how accurate this game is, or how playable 4...e5 is?

  FSR: 6.exd6 is also good, with an extra pawn. Only White's blunder 6.h3?? makes 4...e5? playable.

(threatening ... Nc5#) 33.Be7 b5+ 34.Ka5 Ra3#

6.h3 .. was a bit careless and maybe ahead of her time. Only in recent years do we see the Super GM's play the d3/h3/a3-attack. The move doesn't fit however once you have moved 3 central pawns a full 2 squares. I guess even the pathetic 6.h4 .. would have been better.
