Kibitzer's Corner
May-19-11  qqdos: This is the illustrative game quoted by <Dave Rudel (of "Zuke" fame)> in his article on The Phoenix Attack Quick-Start Guide. The innovation is 9.b4!, which was played by Colle himself in his victory against future World Champion Max Euwe in the 1920's. However a couple of years after this game, Miltner played the wonder move but didn't rise from the ashes - crashing in flames after 17 moves. The jury is out!?
May-19-11  qqdos: The second Miltner game referred to above was Miltner vs Sebastian, 2006 also in the Bundesliga. There Black diverged with 11...Bg4 and White soon lost a piece.
