Jul-30-10  drmariogodrob: Whoa! This line (for black) is something I stumbled into by playing this opening badly in October. It ended a little better for me--after 10. ... hxg4 my opponent played the greedy 11. Bg5, which after 11. ... Qb6 gives black sufficient compensation for the piece. He elected to give back the exchange instead with 12. 0-0-0. (full game available at, and is the last game on the list, Tisinger-Fisette)

I don't have an engine running on this, but when I checked it out after my game the suggestion was (as I suspected at the time) that the simple 11. Rh1 should be enough for white to hold a strong edge--the pawns black gets are not such great pawns, and the white king goes to the queenside. Still, it looks like black gets plenty of play in this game, until being smothered at the end. Although, maybe he had no choice but to be smothered. Any insights?

Jul-30-10  drmariogodrob: Maybe 20. Nge7 ? At least it prevents the specific way the end came about here. For a time.
