Game 3: Jansa v. Huebner

I've been reviewing Silman's book, How to Reassess Your Chess.  One piece of advice from that book is that engines can be bad for your chess development if you do not question them about why a move is good or bad.  One can easily see the long variation spouted by an engine without knowing what is actually going on in the position.  I always use my own brain to analyze and use the engine to test my ideas and I never take the engine's opinions on faith because the whole point is to teach my own brain.  But in this case, I made sure to question the engine and try to figure out what is going on in the position when it says that I am right or wrong.  It led to some surprising results!
