What's the best try for an edge meant to be after 3...Nf6 4 e5 Ne4 - ? 5 Ne2 Qb6 6 d4 c5 etc. seems like it's more than okay for Black and 5 d4 Nxc3 6 bxc3 e6 seems alright too. Is 5 Qe2 Nxc3 6 dxc3 followed by Bf4 and 0-0-0 a decent attempt?

Thanks Guys.

I dont have that book (must be the only one i dont have lol ), and had forgotten it had been mentioned in an earlier thread on the line. Apologies for that.

The answer to the subject line is "good enough."

I've only ever seen the Advance, or Panov lines recommended In repertoire books for white. Does anyone know why this may be?


Two reasons:
1. Author discretion. 
2. Your research was not comprehensive.

Well, it was recently recommended in Sveshnikov's Blitz/Rapid repertoire book. I think it is a pretty good shortcut line, but I am hard pressed to find an edge for White after 3...Nf6.
  

All our dreams come true if we have the courage to pursue them.

I don't know anything about this line but was under the impression it wasn't a strong line for white...yet when looking at the repertoire's of two players whose games I am thinking of studying, I saw they both played this as their main line against the CK.

Maybe i'm mistaken but wasn't this the line that Fischer played, and led to being teased by the Russians?

I've only ever seen the Advance, or Panov lines recommended In repertoire books for white. Does anyone know why this may be?
