Dec-21-12  jerseybob: "Hungarian Opening"? How about Leningrad Reversed? And a bad Leningrad at that. In the regular Leningrad, black often strives for the advance e7-e5. With a move in hand, that should be even easier for white. But white falls asleep with 8.c3!?, and after Nc5!, e4 is suddenly impossible. Maybe better was the direct 7.Nc3, and if 7..d4 8.Ne4,Nxe4 9.dxe4, a well-known black line with a move in hand.

  IMlday: This was my most traumatic game ever. A win would give me the IM title. The opening is a bit psychological as his play-with-the-pieces classical style disdained pawn warfare, as in the correct ..b7-b5 plan. So he clowns around with ..Ra6-b6 and then with 21..Ra6 offers a draw. Actually the position is winning but I didn't understand the right strategy for another ten years. Some computers also don't quickly notice that 22.g5! intending N/f3-d2-e4 leaves Black completely mangled.

  perfidious: <IMlday> A most unfortunate oversight in missing 22.g5; your opponent would have got a shock if he had had to face the idea outlined in your note. The spectre of the octopus at e4 would have haunted him for good and all.
