  JonathanJ: Why is this the only game with 6. ... Ng4?
Mar-17-17  Paarhufer: 6.. ♘g4? has been played more than once, but it is always a bad move.

Poor Mross fell into the trap 7.♗e2? ♕b6!, which is unclear and very much to Richter's liking. He could have played 7.♗b5 ♗d7 (7.. ♕d7? 8.♘d5! appeared in a game Klowan vs Kupreitschik, Minsk 1978) and White can try R.Schwarz' suggestions from the year 1984: 8.♘f5, which I prefer, or 8.♘xc6 bxc6 9.♗xc6 ♗xc6 10.♕xg4.

Another option is the simple 7.h3. Then 7.. ♘f6 is probably the best move, and that shows how bad 6.. ♘g4 is. 7.. ♘ge5 8.♗e2 because of the lead in development, and Black's knight is vulnerable at e5.
