My old analysis says 14.Bd3 Ba6 15.Nb2 Nc5 16.Bxa6 Qxa6 17.Qe2 Qa3 18.Qb5+ Ke7 19.0-0 Qe3+ 20.Rf2 Rhc8 21.Raf1 and black has not enough compensation. I haven't looked at this line for ages but it still looks good.


For the record, Negi also gives this line as leading to +/-. His main line is 17...d3, which he also likes for White.

Greetings.

Does anyone have a bust to the following gambit? I know that 13...b5 is bad, but how do you combat 13...b6? I've encountered this in blitz a few times and it is difficult to play against. The comp doesn't find existing theory very convincing. I'm only showing a slight plus for white. However, it's tricky for a human to play as white, so black has compensation in that regard. Any thoughts? I thought there was a line recommended by bologan on his french DVD for chessbase, but i no longer have access to it.

Negi it.

I'm just gonna pretend that's an expression.

Have a nice day.

Hey All,

Does anyone have a bust to the following gambit? I know that 13...b5 is bad, but how do you combat 13...b6? I've encountered this in blitz a few times and it is difficult to play against.
