Now that it is a year later, wondering what is the verdict on GM Delchev's 1.Nf3 d5 2.c4 d4 3.b4 line? 

And has Reinhold Thiele's "refutation" been refuted? 

Thiele's line is still good, so Delchev's 6 Bb5+ is probably dubious and at the moment White prefers 6 Qa4+. I've covered this line a couple of times recently, see the updates.

And the line is back in business, yes, sir, and better than ever indeed !!   

While it is better, ...Bd7 in also better than the move chosen in the game.

Still, lots to explore.

That was a monster novelty, for an OTB game.

The update also mentions the other option  ...Bd7, so I am very happy.

Subscribe and see !!

6.Qa4+ eh, must have a look at that, White was not doing too well with the alternatives iirc

Of course that is a very valid explanation. I find it nice of you to share lots of ideas anyway, like in the Alekhine thread.

Anyhow, it is interesting how much scope there is in these lines and I would guess that they are good for cc games, because the engines must have problem evaluating the compensation for White.

I am a little uncomfortable discussing this line here since I'm currently involved in a cc game rather early in this very variation. I'll be happy to share my views once it is finished or has reached a later stage. I can say, however, that Bd7 would be my choice as black.

That's why I posted the last question, but wasn't sure it was known here who is behind the nickname Ludde.

Thanks for pointing that out! It is always nice to read a strong player's comments to his own games. I wonder what more developments we'll see in this line.

What about Black's alternative 6 ...Bd7 after 6. Qa4+? And also, did anyone look more carefully at 9 ...Qg4 in the game Mannermaa-Voll?

If you are interested in this game then you should look for Tiger´s blog where he has commented the game himself.

I may be missing something, but why not 9...Qg4 ?

No doubt this was analysed by both parties involved, but without spending too much time on serious thought it seems that white get some kind of lead in development after 10.d3 Qxg2 11.Rf1 (engines top choice btw). If it is really good is a different question.

9...Qg4 10.b5!? e4 11.bxc6 bxc6 12.Nd4 Qxg2 13.Rf1 Bxc5 and now 14.Ba3 or 14.Nxc6 is possible, too.. Maybe good for playing OTB, but not too good for the CC.  Roll Eyes

You seem to be right on this, but then 6.Qa4+ Bd7 might be a better choice for black
