  juan31: Los caballos de las negras fueron poderosos Master Morozevich fue agresivo desde los primeros movimientos, las blancas hicieron todo para defenderse, pero sucumbieron ante el ataque siempre bien posicionado de las negras.

  HeMateMe: Moro's best games are great. He reminds me of Alekhine.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: 3.g3 has fared surprisingly poorly in the CG database; in fact, 3.g4 has done better! This 2...a6 defense to the Closed Sicilian has proven effective. Black actually wins more often than White.
Sep-23-19  spingo: 90% of the play is on the queenside. Black plays relentlessly to gain a passed a-pawn, and to keep it.

The a-pawn costs White a piece. It is very Alekhine-like, as <HeMateMe> says.

Sep-23-19  Ironmanth: Some awesome creeping improvement, and ultimate strangulation, by Moro's pieces. Excellent game; thanks chessgames! Happy Fall to all.
Sep-23-19  patzerboy: Lovely, watching Black incroach step by step on White's Queenside and just smother him there. Very enjoyable.

  OhioChessFan: Channeling Tarrasch and Nimzo..slow strangulation.
Sep-23-19  ajile: 5..f5 would be interesting. Also a thematic Black move in an agressive QID.
Sep-23-19  Eisenheim: One looks at the board at move 7 and asks what did white accomplish during the opening. The position is cramped, while the white bishop is fianchetto's the central pawn blocks it in, the one knight is clumsily grim on the rim with not much hope for expansion, the other went back to its original square and black has a huge spatial advantage. Other than that it's a brilliant opening
