More Isolani Resources
One of the games that Steve referenced "en passant" in his talk was Botvinnik-Vidmar, Nottingham 1936, which is considered by most authorities a classic isolani game. For some good commentary on this game see Larry Evans's 1978 Chess Life article (online at The Mountain Lake Chess Camp site) on creating an "Opening Repertoire" around the isolani position -- available in two picture files: Page One and Page Two. Since these are essentially very big picture files, they will take a long time to load via a dialup modem -- so you may want to download the image to your desktop via the Mountain Lake links.
