In their book, Panczyk and Ilczuk favour the line 7.Nd2 bxc4 because they consider 7...Bb4 8.Qc2 O-O 9.Be2 e5 10.dxe5 Ne4 11.Ncxe4 good for White (p.161).
However, in the ChessPub ebook on the QG...

Uhm...this site seems to lack most important lines
Is there any logical reason why the Orthodox lines (D60-D69) aren't covered at all in the d4-d5 section of the website?

Hello everybody,
