  HeMateMe: Why do you suppose black voluntarily gives up a pawn, in this opening? He seems to get no compensation, and loses the game quickly.
Mar-12-12  King Death: There had to be a misjudgment somewhere by Black and my guess is that 10...b6 wasn't the best idea though 15.Bf4 is easy to miss when analyzing at move 10.

  Penguincw: I don't think 15...♗xd5 is the greatest idea. It traced back to the novelty, 9...Qc7.

Mar-15-12  Galaxy7: Black gave up a pawn in the opening gaining the Bishop Pair as a compensation ... but it appears that it's not even enough to generate any real counterplay ! Interesting game ... Black was in a sort of zugzwang in the final diagram ... ^_^
