Sep-02-07  MadBishop: The continuation: <5.Ne2> transposes into the Reshevsky variation, of which Mikhail Gurevich is currently the leading exponent!
Sep-03-07  RookFile: Yes, when Reshevsky was playing this, people figured out in a hurry that it's real dangerous to be on the black side of this against him. Reshevsky was literally made to be playing the white side of the Nimzo Indian.
