We are going to have a look at this because I have found a smashing OTB game.

ceroceroseix - dragon2195 RHP 2007

A look at Black playing 4...Nxc3 instead of 4...Nf6 because a good move is being missed
by RHP players who are being misled by the rule of thumb, ‘Bishops are better than Knights.’

over a hundred years can bring so much pleasure to thousands of other players.

W. Donisthorpe - Mundell, London, 1892

The solution to the Yochanan Afek study.
