    To cLippi:  I don't think this "Nxc3 bxc3 a6 b6 Qxc3+ Bd2 Qc4 dxe6 Qxe6 Rb1 Bb7 Qa4 Be7 shows black in not such big trouble" is a main variation; I will post what I think is the best way to play for White.  I believe the position at 5:10 is indeed very good for white.

     

    The moves being

     

    1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 c5 4. d5 b5 5. Bg5 Qa5+ (?!) 6. Nc3 (!) Ne4 (?!) 7. cxb5 (!).

    I don't trust 5...Qa5+ very much in the situation after white's 5th move.

    Mhm, I somehow do not understand why the position at 05:10 is so much better for white! In fact, Houdini for example evaluates it as around -0,20 for black - that is definitely not game-deciding or refuting. Often, not even engines can exploit such a slight advantage. The main variation Nxc3 bxc3 a6 b6 Qxc3+ Bd2 Qc4 dxe6 Qxe6 Rb1 Bb7 Qa4 Be7 shows black in not such big trouble.
