the best line for white after 1 e4 e6 2 d4 d5 3 Nc3 c5?! 4 exd5 exd5 5 dxc5 d4 6 Bb5+ Nc6 7 Bxc6+ bxc6 8 Nce2 Bxc5 9 Nf3 Bb4+ 10 Bd2 Bxd2 11 Qxd2 c5 now chess openings: theory and practice gives 12 0-0-0 but this looks suspect due to blacks attacking chances against the white king. what about possible play after 12 0-0
your variation isn't even possible, how does black play 9.... c5 when he has no c pawn? and why would you play Nce2 blocking in your light squared bishop, and how exactly are you going to play 0-0 when your bishop is in the way.....
6.Nce2 looks weird/counter-intuitive. Factly, I cannot find a single game where this move has been played.
What's wrong with 6.Nb5 or 6.Bb5+?
I just corrected my original post. I look forward to suggestions. :)
Ummm, quite some correction. However, 7.Bxc6+ doesn't make sense, either.
After 7.Qe2+ (protecting the b5 bishop) followed by Ne4, white is simply a very healthy pawn up.
Please forget about opening moves, and try finding some logic behind the moves played.
I could never figure this out
a possible line is 6 ... Bd7 7 Nxd7 Qxd7 8 dxc5 Bxc5 9 Nc3 Ne7 10 Bg5 f6 etc. with Black counting on active play to compensate for the isolani.
why does no one care about the champions after Kasparov?
