  Eggman: The position after 5.O-O has been reached 265 times in the database, and Black has tried 10 different 5th moves, yet not one game has featured 5...Bg4. I wonder what the refutation would be.
Jan-05-17  izimbra: The move <13...Bd5> instead of the simple capture <13...Qxd4> was the beginning of an entire series of blunder moves by Black which through away the game. It's hard to explain or understand why So played soooo inaccurately, after his recent run of good form. <14..Be6> instead <14..Bxde4> wouldn't drop the piece. <15..Nxe4> instead of <15...Qxd4> and <16...Rh3> intead of <16...Kxf7> would have extended the massacre a little longer for black.
