Without the c7pawn, Black would have freedom 10 move about. As it Is (with Bb7 hanging over his head) Black le very nearly stalemated moves 1 .f4 c5 2.e4 Nc6 3.d3 g6), the move 4.c4, the motive of which I visualized as a blockade spanning half the board, and in a review I made the following note to this move: "Since this move is not inspired by the hope of preventing or even of making ...d5 more difficult, a special explanation is needed. Black wishes to build up the configuration e6-d5. This done, he will consider the extension of his attack formation to the Queenside by ...Nd4 when opportunity offers, in order after Nxd4 ...cxd4, to bring pressure on the c-file to the point c2. The text move is made to forestall this possible extension of play on the Queenside. Tne hole at d4 does not seem to be a serious matter."

When I today ask myself where I got the moral courage to form a plan running counter to all tradition, I think I may answer that it was only my intense preoccupation with the problem of the blockade which helped me do so. To this problem I was ever seeking to bring out new sides, and so in Dresden, 1926, as Black after the moves 1 .e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3, I ventured the move 3...e5, which at that time caused a huge sensation. My special variation given above is to be considered merely a further step on a trail which had already been broken. The able Danish theorist Dr. O. H. Krause, has pursued an original inquiry into the possibility of a combination of e4 and c4, in which, independently of my analysis, he has arrived at much the same conclusions as I did.

The student is advised to study games No. 33-35 at this point.
