In that case, starting with 11.Nd4 (most comments by Botterill):

Iskov-Hebden, Manchester 1979

11.Nd4 Qe7 12.N2b3 Nxd4 13.cxd4 Bb4+ 14.Kd1?? Nxf2+ 0-1. Botterill suggests 12.Bxd3 Nxd4 13.cxd4 Bxd4 14.Qxd4 Ng3+ 15.Kd1 (in my notes I have 15.Ne4) Nxh1 16.Nf3 "Black has a problem about getting the knight on h1 out, but it is unfortunate that the king is one of White's centralised pieces."

Iskov-Kaiszauri, Oslo 1980

11.Nd4 Bxd4 12.cxd4 Bf5 13.Bxd3 (13.f3? Nb4 -+) Qe7 14.Bb5 0-0-0 15.Bxc6 bxc6 16.Nxe4 dxe4 ("Kaiszauri observes that 16...Bxe4!? was in fact possible as 17.f3?! Qxg7 18.fxe4 allows Qxg2 19.Rf1 Rdf8 20.Qe2 Rxf1+ 21.Qxf2 Qxe4+ 22.Kd1 Qxd4+ 23.Kc2 Rg2 -+. So White should play 17.0-0 Qxg7 18.g3 unclear"; I also have 16...Rde8!?) 17.Qc3 e3?! ("just 17...Rxg7 - Kaiszauri" 17...Qxg7 18.Qxc6 unclear, Good-Bacon, corr 2000 18.Bxe3 Rxg7 and now "Kaiszauri laconically gives 19.0-0! +-. I take the point to be that the obvious 19...Bh3 is met by 20.g3! Bxf1 21.Rxf1 when White's advantages in quantity and quality of pawns outweigh the exchange."

Finally I have 16...Bxe4 17.f3?! Qxg7 (Kaiszauri) 18.g3 Rde8 19.0-0 Bf5 -+ Abramson-Good, corr 1993.

Like Micawber I have always suspected, that the deviations 8...Bf5 and 8...Qxf6 are reasonable as well. As a consequence I have always preferred to play 2.d4 exd4 3.c3 iso 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 exd4 4.c3, which is the Göring Gambit and not the Scottish Gambit (4.Bc4).
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

@MNB:
You mentioned Iskov's two "disasterous" games" in a previous post, but did not provide the game-scores.  Sad


@Bibs:

Thx for the links. Unfortunately they dont't contain material relevant to the lines discussed in this thread.

The first is a link to an opinion by Dan Quigley. He is an able analyst, and 1.e4,e5 players probably
know him from "Quigley's bust" to the Marshall gambit. (not really a bust, but it put one
move-order in the main line out of business). I've played (and won) against him, so I was a little surprised to see his rating quoted as 2500+ (corr.rating). 2100-2200 seems more appropiate.

The second link is by Taylor (ex USA-corr champion). He did write a booklet about this opening, and I have quoted a game he played above (not mentioned on his internetsite). I was aware of this link. The commented games are interesting, but you should be aware his opinions are biased. In general he seems to optimistic about white;s chances.

Hi,

Quick google lifted this guy's views on chessworld site:

http://www.chessworld.net/chessclubs/forums_thread_show_one_posteronleftstyle.as...

He suggests some  texts  and provides some games. Havent looked so cannot comment on quality.

and found this some time ago:

http://www.gambitchess.com/ponz.htm
which is a link to a US correspondence guys updates of his own Ponz text. Shedloads there.

Seems a big difference of opinion on the relative merits of Bb5 and qa4.

I have no opinion to offer as yet, sorry. Am completely new to it.

regards

Bibs

I am not very convinced about the 8...d3 line. But there is more to this line than the games cited  above:

1.e4,e5 2.Nf3,Nc6 3.c3,Nf6 4.d4,exd4 5.e5,Ne4 6.Qe2,f5 7.exf6,d5 8.Nbd2

The following line is less clear than preceding posts suggest:

8.....,Qxf6 9.Nxe4,dxe 10.Qxe4,Qe6 (10....Be7!?) 11.Bd3 doesnt give white much of an advantage IMHO:
11......dxc3 And now white has two replies:

I.12.0-0
II.12.bxc


I. 12.0-0, Qxe4 13.Bxe4, Bb4!? (14.Bxc6,bxc 15.bxc,Bxc unclear) 14.bxc,Bxc3 Schaeffer-vd.Doel 2000

By the way Velimirovic-Ree contains a flaw:

13......Bd7 14.Bxc6,Bxc6 15.Re1+,Kf7 16.Ne5+

Now Ree blundered with 16...Kf6 17.Nxc6, bxc6 18.bxc
Black should play instead

16....Kg8! 17.Nxc6,cxb2! 18.Bxb2,bxc with equality.
(Holthuis-Leeners, corr. 1985)

II.12.bxc3!?, Bd7! 13.0-0,0-0-0

Nor is the following line exactly clear:

1.e4,e5 2.Nf3,Nc6 3.c3,Nf6 4.d4,exd4 5.e5,Ne4 6.Qe2,f5 7.exf6,d5 8.Nbd2, Bf5

9.Nxd4,Nxd4 10.cxd4,Kf7!? 11.Nxe4,Bxe4 12.fxg7,Bxg7 lead to a sharp and unclear position in Ohlzon-Mattala, Hallstahammer 1998 (Sweden)

9.Nxe4,dxe4 10.f7+,Kxf7 11.Ng5+
and now not 11....Kf6? 12.g4 +-  Duckstein-Wittman 1976 but
11.....Ke8 12.Nxe4,Qe7 13.Ng3,Bg6=  (Taylor-Andersson, USA 1981)


Finally if some of you are trying to find some more theory on this line you should realize
that some authors consider these variations as belonging to the scotch gambit:

(1.e4,e5 2.Nf3, Nc6 3.d4,xd4 4.c3,Nf6 transposes)

5...Nd5 is also mentioned, which seems to equalise immediately.


I think White can preserve an edge after 5...Nd5.
Botterill in Open Gambits (1986) also likes 5...Ne4 (he reaches this variation via the Göring Gambit 3.d4 exd4 4.c3 Nf6 5.e5 Ne4) 6.Qe2 f5! 7.exf6 d5 8.Nbd2 d3 9.Qe3 Bc5 10.fxg7 Rg8 11.Nd4.

In another thread I have posted two games Iskov-Hebden, Manchester 1979 and Iskov-Kaiszauri, Oslo 1980. As these cannot be found in databases, I suggest to use the Search button. Botterill concludes:

"All I can say, is that the 4...Nf6 line offers chances for both sides and needs further investigations. I do not know of any secure way for White to get a plus."
Little seems to have changed since then.
