Heh, Be2 is as far as I knew this line, seems everyone else knows it to move 10.
Whob is prfectly correct...!!
wow ok christian kudos on that one... it would have totally taken me off guard. your right that Bf1 is totally counter intuitive carlsen threw it out there once. I will have to mention this for kids. Its a great surprise weapon
This game seems to be a prepared line by a serious GM.. the position is crazy though. I left in The notes by GM Vallejo Pons
Don't put yourself in that position!
What do you mean, its perfectly fine for Black!
By the way, it's black to move. My bad.
I've never faced that b5 line before.
well it seems that after ..b5 unless white plays Bf1 black gains the bishop pair in an open position after ....Nd4. Its a nice idea.... The one game I found and posted where white wins is a bit tricky and took a GM with solid technique to pull it off so not 100% convinced.
