This is a pretty solid if not particularly adventurous line with some similarities to the queenless middlegames of the Spanish Berlin. In this line de 5.Qd8 Kd8 6.Bg5 Be6 7.000 Nd7 8.f4 is the "m...

6. e5 Austrian Attack -- Black can easily equalize
It seems that with 8... Nxc3 Black can easily equalize against White's 6. e5 in the Austrian attack. Does White have anything in this line that I am missing?
