    Yeah, but he never got smacked over the head by a chessboard, like Kasparov did.  It was wood too.  That's why I say Kasparov was better.

    If anyone bothered to read this link, posted above by FrootLoop, they might have noticed 5.h3 is the correct move in the Legal Trap not 5.Ne5? Ne5 winning a piece for a pawn.

    Btw why didn't White play 5 h3 first?  If NimzoRoy was here, I'll bet he'd have the answer to that.

    Oh yeah, and trysts was the one who brought up that thing about Kasparov and the chessboard.  If she ever shows up to this thread, perhaps she can elaborate.

    I do but I'm not telling. But thanks for your faith in me!

    You are never too late to be early for this party!

    So far paulgottlieb is the only one foolish enough to have read anybody else's posts...a transgression which we are only just now forgiving him for.

    If it's a legal trap, can you file an estop?
