evans gambit declined
I stumbled upon this game :
[pgn][Event "DEN-chT 1112 50th"]
[Site "Denmark"]
[Date "2012.01.29"]
[Round "6.1"]
[White "Hector, Jonny"]
[Black "Hagen, Andreas Skyt...|/pgn]
I always thought that 5.b5 was a bad idea since I read it in pinsky's book. I even stopped playing the evans because I didn't like the declined version of it (too symmetrical especially if black play a6,h6 and doesn't take the knight on d5).
But then I saw this 7.Be2 and I don't know it feels interresting again. The position seem complex and stockfish seems ok with it (let him go to 25 depth if you want him to appreciate it).
It seems that all the other games continued with 7.d4 which is refuted.

[pgn][Event "Jagannathji Shinde Trophy"]

I think 14Qf3 was slightly better instead of trading of queen..
