I imagine 7...Ne5 is OK, even after 9 Bg5, if Black knows what he's doing, but I share CBT's lack of enthusiasm -- 7 ...Nb8!? is just so much more strategically rich!

Hello.

Black's position after (6...Nc5 7.d5 Ne5 8.Nxe5 dxe5) is solid. Personally though I've never had a good feeling about it.


Perhaps it can be mentioned that there is also a line after 6...a6 that goes:

(1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 g6 4.Nf3 Bg7 5.Be2 0-0 6.0-0 a6 7.Re1 Nc6 8.d5 Ne5!? 9.Nxe5 dxe5)

With similar play; though after 10.Bg5 I can guarantee that black won't be spending a tempo on a6 Smiley

Have a nice day.

Fas of this line may appreciate the game here, if not the brevity.
Long hair, but short game.

As I understand the netiquette of such things, I understand it is generally considered 'off' to post within a forum simply as a means to drive traffic to one's own site. Understandable, perhaps, but not really the done thing. Agree?

A few years ago my analysis on chesspub were copied and sold without asking my permission. I made my conclusions from that experience. Here I only put a small intro and the rest can be read on my own blog.

I can't remember any earlier complaints about this although I have posted already dozens of links from chesspub in the last couple of years to my blog. My blog is a non profit private initiative so I assumed this was ok. Anyway if this is not anymore the case then I will stop immediately making any links to my blog.

I was just checking the March update from IM Sam Collins where he states that white has next to nothing in the opening.


Now I wonder if he talks about 9.Bg5 which I analyzed heavily last year. It looks to me as a nice try for some advantage although I admit things can quickly become extremely complicated.
