Nice analysis by everyone. I appreciate your insight, and I am sure that Samsch does as well. It is always good to be reminded why the book lines are the way they are.
Looks like the best move for Samsch to make is to continue the standard lines and play, 6...Bg7.
I completely agree with what everyone said, and i'm playing the mainline 6...Bg7
Just play the Bc4 line with h4 and h5
I would have played 8. Qd2 and then 9. 0-0-0, but I see where you are going um just don't blunder your queen like you did in our game
huh?? you mean pinned a queen, right
and didn't Qg4 win
oh, what did you discover for Qg4
I play Bd7.
Could someone post a diagram of where we are?
white has a few Ideas, first Qd2 is an atractive option, starting to preasure the kingside, preparing to castle and readying his attack on the Kingside
second, 0-0 King safety, preparing to fight for the middle, dissagree with this option however, because it is not only fairly dull, but it keeps your attack from developing with any urgency
and I would think that g4 is something to look at considering the possibility of getting the Kingside attack started asap
Qd2 seems reasonable.
9. g4 looks fine, it might just transpose into the mainline. I don't like 10. g5 much though. It makes it a little harder to open lines against black's kingside.
9. Qd2 is probably best.
I don't know, heading for a mainline isn't always best, I would like to see a break from theory here or on the next move, g4 seems like the most interesting to me, but h4 is a little more stable
sorry jet, I rarely get to play this mainline. I'd like to castle before attacking. that being said i play Qd2
Agreed with all of the anylysis coming, that being said, i'll play Nc6.
whoah what happened, that any of that is sound makes no sence to me, I think I will keep my g file attack, get the knight out of the way
I will post the position when I can, for those watching
you mean d5 not Nd5 giving up a knight for little compensation
