I will play 5...exd5! (i'm too lazy to make a diagram)
By thr way Sam, you should press "Set focus" on your move, just to make it easier :)
oh, ok :)
Sorry for the delay. I was taking a nap (I am feeling awful today with a fever of 101 degrees). I will play 6.Bb5+
Or Nc6 (which is book by the way)
My brain is dead and I can hardly think straight. I'm lucky to have survived this long against Sam
You guys should give all of your moves brilliant marks (!!)
Sorry guys, I like Nc6 here
There's also another forum game that needs some kibitzers
Nxd4 would be powerful. Black is undeveloped!
Since I am on my phone and there are no diagrams, I play 7. Nxd4
sorry samsch im rooting for RybkaShredder. I like his position better.
And as an ex-smith morra player myself every one of your moves have ticked me off lol
I play 7...Bd7!
This is similar to a French line 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.nd2 c5 4.exd5 exd5 5.nf3) with the exception that there is a pawn on c3. In that line, in general, it is very important for black to keep his knights "connected", either put them on c6 and e7 or d7 and f6. So I think bd6 followed by nge7 is best, since if nf6 re1+ that king could easily get stuck in the center
Ok, I play Bd6!
