    So The Question Is Posed, Who Is Better Off Black With His Overall Setup, Or White With His Extra Pawn And Bishop Pair? Opinions?

    I Myself Prefer Blacks Chances After 10...  d6 Opening Up The Bishop And Protecting the c7 Pawn, Followed By A Castle Giving The Semi-Open File To Blacks Rook, Pointing Right At White's Kingside. Plus, I Feel Like White's Double Pawns Lead To A Pretty Weak Queenside.

    So A Draw Then, Judging By What You Are Saying, Neither Side Should Have Realistic Winning Chances Unless The Other Messes Up.

    No, I Am Not German. Yeah I Have Seen The Other Line With Fairly Decent Gameplay.

    White is a bit better, but the c-pawn has almost no value. There's theoretical lines where white goes c5 to sac the pawn. That means only the bishop's pair remains, which is why I don't like the Nc3 lines too much.

    Hmm, Dutchday, I Never Thought About A c5 Sac, Kind Of Interesting I Must Say.

    Hmm, Nice Post Dutchday, I Feel Black Could Of Stopped That A Little Better.

    Sure. A sample line is a sample line, though it is real theory. Now if you can find something better for black, or if you can discover why another move won't change much either, then you will learn something about the position.

    Yeah, It Is. Just Some Moves With The Knight Look Rather Iffy In The Game. But Sample Is a Sample, Does Not Need to Be Anything More I Guess.

    Actually that game went 16.Nd4

    You may be right that the Na5 line is not the best, though my theory doesn't clarify. Anyway. I was just showing the c-pawn sac.

    I Feel That Black Has Potential Though, Lots Of Things Could Go Wrong for White.
