That or maybe something restrained that probes the extended Q side.

Interesting line. I play the Cozio quite a bit and find the lines 3...Nge7 4.c3! (4.Nc3 Ng6! 5.d4 exd4 6.Nxd4 Nxd4 7.Qxd4 c6! I find quite playable) and 3...a6 4.Ba4 Nge7 5.c3! very challenging for Black.

Maybe this would avoid direct transpositions to those lines. A critical line is likely to start with 3...a6 4.Ba4 b5 5.Bb3 g6 6.c3 Bg7 7.d4 exd4 8.cxd4.

Is White obliged to do anything? Why not keep options open by 0-0? Setting up the big centre with c3 and d4 is still possible and Black has to watch out that the crude Ng5 punt doesn't work.


6.0-0 followed by c3 would be something I would like to see with Black here since then it´s possible to transpose to a decent version of the Cozio with 6...Bg7 7.c3 Nge7 while sidestepping some of the problem lines like 3.Bb5 Nge7 4.Nc3 or 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nge7 5.c3 g6 6.d4 exd4 7.cxd4 b5 8.Bc2 Bg7 9.d5 Na5 10.Bd2 when it´s to White´s advantage that both sides haven´t castled yet.

Just my opinion, but I believe that Black could get similar style positions for less problems by playing the Pirc.


That´s a matter of taste. I have played the Modern Defence many times in my life but I don´t like to face some of White´s options against the Pirc like 4.Be3. Something like that does not exist for me after 1.e4 e5.

The line looks interesting to me and maybe Black can use this move order to avoid some of the problem lines in the Cozio-Defence. But I am sure White will find ways to put Black under pressure here as well.

A ´new´ kingside fianchetto for Black in the Ruy!?

I just noticed an interesting game played today in the German Bundesliga:



I was not aware of the possibility of 5...g6!? before. Maybe Black was inspired by another recent game from the last European Championship:



However, the line cannot exactly be called new. Checking Megabase the earliest encounter I could find was this game:



There is nothing new under the sun...

The line looks interesting to me and maybe Black can use this move order to avoid some of the problem lines in the Cozio-Defence. But I am sure White will find ways to put Black under pressure here as well.

Does anybody know about some published analysis on this line?
