  freeman8201: very odd! A delayed dutch stone wall minus the dark square bishops
Mar-28-09  brucejavier: kangaroo defense .. someone please explain the line to me!! never heard of this opening! Magnus Carlsen seems to be wining games following this game. Looks like im gonna have to start playing this line due to the fact that im from here.
Mar-31-09  Mulyahnto: This seems unpleasant for white, but hardly resignable. Rybka suggests (evaluated at each move):

39. ♔h2 ♘xg5 40. fxg5 ♖xg5 41. ♖f2 ♖g3 43. ♖h4 ♖a1 44. ♖h6+ ♔e5 45. b5 ♖xa3 46. bxc6 bxc6 47. ♖xc6 d4 and the d pawn becomes unstoppable

Black will have to eventually play Rc3, d3 and Rc2.
