    @InspiredSquare After 4.e5 c5 5.c3 Nc6, White is not able to achieve his ideal setup with Bd3 and Ne2 successfully, because of the pressure on d4. In comparison with the line 3.Nd2 Nf6 4.e5 Nd7 5.Bd3, White is able to play Bd3 before Black hits with c5.

    Tatev begins the video by explaining that White's ideal set up after 1...e6 and 2...d5, is for white to have: knight on e2, knight on f3, pawn on e5, pawn on c3.

    Her proposal to play 3...Be7 does nothing to prevent this setup, and presupposes a white attempt to exploit the 3...Be7, with 4.Qg4.

    Tatev: what is Black's plan if White simply continues with its development, by playing the ideal setup?  There is nothing to hinder that from happening in 3...Be7, and since white does this in the mainline, why wouldn't white just continue with that?  

    I don't see it, so I'll look forward to your explanation (the only thing that I can see, is a possible early ...f6, where the Black knight would look to jump, with ...f6. exf6 Nxf6.  What am I missing?)

    Thank you WGM Abrahamyan. That was a good introduction to the 3...Be7 line for me. I usually play 3...Nf6 but this gave me some food for thought.

    at 23 u talk about the queen being in trouble..But, can't they just exchange a rook and queens.  Is that bad for white for some reason?

    of course the black knight on c5 is a problem.

    What if white sacks the b3 knight at 24:13 and captures d5 with the rook pinning the knight on d7? the idea being to bring the bishop on c2 to b3. Then white has the potential of a discovered check when you move the white rook from d5?
