    But you have to admit it's quite bold from the little girl, especially considering Carlsen winning with it just a few days ago.

    Yeah very, the same as with her attack vs Nakamura, she's playing some interesting chess.

    Lol, it's funny how c3 is marked as -0.05 :D

    He played f6 instead of Bb4 on move 9, probably forgot the correct move order Wink

    I would have made a different 9th move for White.

    Now that she has played 12. e6 she may be in trouble and my guess she is going to have to try pushing her" " pawn at some point to try and justify her e6 move..

    What would you play? I'd probably go with Nc3.

    Yes, 9. Nc3  but I would not play  6. Bc4 either and we avoided that line in our vote chess games.

     

    However Carlsen is playing a line very similar to what Pfren suggested against 6. Bc4  which goes to show both  Pfren and Carlsen think much alike at least in this particular variation!

    While this opening variation will come down in flames--I am kinda glad it was played as I have analyzed it a little.

    You are correct that the variation 6. Bc4 is a bad variation and that is why we have abandoned that variation in our little group. [or I should say we never even started rather than "abandoned"]

    We have seen 3 games in a row where in the variations White chose inferior lines by these super grandmasters.  Maybe some day we will get lucky and they will play the better theory lines in these particular variations.
