On an android atm so I'll update with the game later (if somebody doesn't beat me to it).
I know d5 isn't a art of much theory and is very rare, but it has grown on me so I'm going with it.
I don't like the 4...d5 move, but I am curious to see how it plays out.
I would say that White should just ignore the attack on the Bishop (for now) and get aggressive by developing a piece and launching an attack of his own on the Queen by playing 5.Nf3
yeah that looks good, makes sence, develops with tempo, and gets center control what's not to like
I think it's better to just 5.Bxd5, Nf3 is not going away anytime soon. It's harder for black to plan if he doesn't know when the queen will be forced back.
I pretty much know my reply to both suggested moves :D Though I probably wont move immediately if 5.Bxd5 is played.
Sorry guys...been rlly busy lately. Anyways, I'm chopping d5 with the Bishop, I'll post a diagram later.
I'm thinking Nf6, any thoughts?
I'm thinking 5...Bc5 and throw some pressure on the King side.
Bc5 is met by d4.
of course, 5...Bc5? 6.d4 is just a loss of time.
Why not play Bg4?
Personally I prefer Nf6, and when the bishop retreats(otherwise Black gets the bishop pair) play Bg4. Try to gain time by attacking the queen. After Nf6 Bb3 Bg4 Black has already equalized due to his lead in development.
After Nf6 im expecting 6.Nf3,not a bishop move.
I dont expect my dark bishop to go past d3 anytime soon,since it could/would be pushed afterwards.
This is why 5.Bxd5 has been IMO more accurate than 5.Nf3. Now the Nf6 cuts the retreating options of the queen. I would play 6.Nf3 now.
yeah seems right
Like i said, I'm expecting Nf3 so I'm already considering my options for after it. Qh5 seems best
