Homo Erectus or Ugly Duckling?
IM Mark Ginsburg offers a "Soviet style" refutation of the "Ugly Duckling" 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.e5 Bf5 4.g4, which Dana Mackenzie has analyzed in a series of articles (Part One and Part Two) as the Homo Erectus Variation. It's nice to see the occasional blogger debate over opening analysis. Reminds me of the long-running Monokroussos - West exchange on the Philidor Counter Gambit.
