  Gilmoy: Knight errant, gunned down.

White's other N was amazingly bad against Black's pawn structure and Bb4.

Jul-24-15  Ke2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5D...

apparently the critical move was 17... e5, which is based on a small, but hard to see tactic. this is that when the knight captures on e5 in any case, both queens will be hanging. and i think that if 18. dxe5 Nxe5 19. Qg3 Nh5 somehow works.

Jul-24-18  chessperson2222222: Probably the biggest London System connoisseur right now is FM Boris Privman, as he plays it nearly every time he has white, and he plays in several chess tournaments every week. I showed him this game and he seems to agree that Stripunsky's early 9. Nc6 was an unusual but very dubious decision.
