  1. Taking b2 is not a good idea but violating development rules with multiple queen moves, opening lines, move the same horse twice, getting the queen trapped are bad habbits. However wiith black you are a tempo down anyway. 🙂

  2. This is a good game. In one of the possible variations it is similiar to a line played in the nimsovitsch defense. The B2 pawn if often the poisen pawn but in this game it is not so bad. Great game and commentary

  3. I think it was this tournament where Capablanca played and told Stalin: "Your Soviet players are cheating, they are giving points to Botvinnik on purpose"(not world for word quote). And Stalin answered he would deal with the matter. Capablanca won that tournament point ahead of Botvinnik.
