Jul-12-07  sitzkrieg: Follow the link to see what kind of player this is..some people get their points by talent and skills, and some, well; look for yourself..

video 5..player on the right..

and no, the clock is no excuse..

Jul-12-07  sitzkrieg: btw, for now the videos seem to be working only on the dutch version of the site.
Oct-25-11  wordfunph: "The move h7–h6 is often useful to keep pieces away from g5 or to create some luft for the king. However, when facing an attack on the kingside, it can be a serious weakness."
