Questions and AnswersQuestion: What is PGN?
Answer: The PGN format (Portable Game Notation) is an international standard for saving games as ASCII text. Many chess programs support this format.
Question: The Lasker-Pelikan after 7.Nd5 NxN 8.exd5 Nb8 which I use to play until a friend showed
me 9.Qf3 with the idea of 10.Qa3 and if necessary Bd2 and later Bb4. It looks silly
but black hasn't any clear way out (Dominique from France).
with attack in Trkulja, G - Rajkovic, D, Zlatibor 1989 (0-1, 60).
Also possible is 9... a6 10. Qa3 Be7 11. Bd2 O-O 12. Bb4
12...Bg4 13. Bxd6 axb5 14. Bxe7 Qxd5 15. Qxa8 Qe4+ 16. Kd2 Qf4+ 17. Ke1 Qe4+ 18. Kd2 Qf4+ 19. Ke1 Qe4+ 20. Kd2 1/2-1/2, draw in Guyot, Ph - Popchev, M, Podgorica 1991.
Interesting is 12... axb5! 13. Qxa8 Na6 14. Bd2 Qc7 15. c3 Qc5 16. Be3 Qxd5 17. Qa7 f5 18. Rd1 Qe4 with good compensation for the exchange (June 2001).
