The review 1 number of the magazine "L'Italia Scacchistica" for OCTOBER, 1933

by Boris Schipkov

There is one theoretical article "A new idea in the Slav Defence" (Una nuova idea nella Difesa Slava) by Lajos Steiner (The Chess Review) in the L'Italia Scacchistica, 15th October, 1933. 1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6 3. Nf3 Nf6 4. Nc3 dxc4 5. a4 Nbd7. I think this is slightly strange move, because after 6. e3 Black must play 6...e6. Here the position unlike the Slav's with a nice bishop's move 5...Bf5.

A mistake. Better is 22... Bg5! with unclear play.
