My apologies, I read 8...d6 instead of 8...d5.

Tony Kosten, Fabio Caruana, and others, played 9...Re8 and reached a fully playable game. Kosten replied 10.Nf1 Na5 while Caruana played 10...h6. Kosten won his game, but Caruana lost a blitz game.

Again, White isn't trying for some theoretical edge, White is just striving for a playable position.

If you don't like 8...d5, play 8...d6.

9.Qe2 is pretty rare. Feller beat Fedorchuk in a blitz game by playing 9...Ne7 10.Nf1 Ng6 11.g4 d5. That seems to be a reasonable plan too.

Basically, White isn't trying to get a theoretical edge with 9.Qe2, white's just trying to get Black to think on his own.

Here white has a plans of g4,Nf1 and attacking the black's king...There are lot of good lines for black like dxe4/Be6/h6/Re8...but still not getting the best continuation and plans.. Undecided


...b5, ...d4, ...dxc3 and ...b4, and White loses the d4-square.

Didn't I see a previous thread where you asked the same question?

I'd suggest searching a database for GM games and see how they handle these positions. There was also a good book by Emms a few years ago called 'Beating 1.e4 e5' which I think had very good strategic advise in these lines.
