C46: 4 Knights 3. ... Bc5 4.Ne5 Ne5 5.d4 Bd6
6. de Be5: and then?
Are there some analysis in this line. Maybe 7. Bd3 is the best way for white.

Nd5 by White
If you play the Berlin against the Spanish at a 2000 level, you aren't really expecting the theoretical ending, rather you are trying to provoke 4. d3 or 4. Nc3. In the latter, transposing to the Four...

4 knights interesting option
In the 4 knights, if White develops the Bishop to c4, I, as Black, capture on e4, so that, after the Knight captures, d5 forks B and Knight and recaptures, allowing some development as well. Okay. But...

Paul Keres played Ne7 vs the Four Knights mainline (4 Bb5 Bb5 5 d3 d6 6 0-0 0-0 7 Bg5 Ne7). I'm always a bit reluctant to let White double my pawns like this, but I think the N on g6 makes the structu...
