    Not Bb4? Or Be7?

  • #3

    Who plays 7 Bd3?  It's a minor sideline because it doesn't really offer White any chance for advantage at all.  Either ...Ne4 or ...dxc4 are fine for Black.  This is the sort of move that tells you White isn't familiar with the Cambridge Springs at all.

    7 cxd5 is the safety play, and White generally scores pretty well with it, although there is no obvious reason for that.  The old Main Line is 7 Nd2 Bb4  8 Qc2, but Black has had resources there, too, for the last hundred years or so.
