   Jul-13-09 A Sokolov vs Shirov, 1994 (replies)
Sir Geoffrey: The 'rule of thumb' about gambits is to accept them...
   Jul-06-09 Mecking vs Botvinnik, 1967 (replies)
Sir Geoffrey: If you're playing as Black and badly needed to win, then play 3...f5 as the former world chess champion did. Of course Black could also play 3...Nf6 which could transpose into a Gruenfeld defence. Both moves of which put pressure on e4.
   Jul-01-09 Korotylev vs Mamedyarov, 2007 (replies)
Sir Geoffrey: The Modern defence lives up to its fierce counter-attacking reputation! This contemporary game shows that 4...c6 is as equally as good as 4...a6 (advocated by Tiger Hillarp Persson in his book "Tiger's Modern") against the standard set-up of White i.e. ...

Sir Geoffrey: A very important note to remember especially for the pure Modern Defence players is that White could immediately steer the game into a 150-attack classified under the Pirc defence by playing 5.Bd3!

Sir Geoffrey: Why did GM Joel Benjamin didn't opt for his pet 1...g6? It might have been a better struggle against Shirov.
   Jul-13-07 B Lopez vs Joel Benjamin, 2004
Sir Geoffrey: The American GM certainly made 6...e6! his pet line against this type of set-up in the Pseudo-Austrian Attack. Securing d5 in the centre before castling is very flexible indeed. Could it be more challenging for Black had White played 7. e5 right away?
   Jul-06-07 J Sprenger vs Glek, 2001 (replies)
Sir Geoffrey: The result (1-0) is quite puzzling. White has obtained a perpetual check on the Black monarch. Escaping the check through f5 ( 38...Kf5?? ) was suicide because of 39.g4 mate. Black, on the other hand, threatened mate on g2. To nullify mate on g2 White plays rook to g3. Even so,
