What about the line :
1 d4 Nf6
2 Bg5 Ne4
3 h4 c5
4 d5 Qb6
5 Nd2 Nxg5
6 hxg5 Qxb2
7 e4 g6
8 Rab1 Qg7
and W has not enough compensation for the pawn

Well done Mnb !

I will publish also a follow-up of my analysis later when my job will allow me to breathe a little...
Thanks Mr Palliser and I will also be glad to see a few of your blitz games in this variation.

Sorry! Should have contributed more! For now I'm just enjoying playing this fascinating line in a few blitz games. It's certainly dangerous for Black and I don't think there's yet any consensus on the best response (refutation?!). We may find out though when somebody tries it against a 2...Ne4 and 3...c5 expert like Kotronias.

I have not seen a reliable antidote against
1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5 Ne4 3.Bf4 c5 4.f3 Qa5+ 5.c3 Nf6 6.d5 Qb6 7.e4 Qxb2 8.Nd2 Qxc3 9.Bc7
published anywhere. Has anyone else?

The posts above indicate that 9.-,Qe3+ 10.Ne2 d6 gives Black a lot of troubles after 11.Nc4 Qh6 12.Bxb8
(I am not that interested to work out all details after 21.Nxc5)

Grischuk (2724) and Alexandrov (2630) have lost with 9.-,g6 and 9.-,b6 respectively, against much lower rated opponents. These games can be found in the January update 2006 of the d-specials section.

There is also this suggestion in a previous post by gdog
Quote:
the gms recommend qe3+ne2 Na6, the idea is that qhites bishop is stuck on f1, if u play Na6 right away then i can play ne2 or bb5, but this is an interestinf idea  anyway,  worth trrying in a blitz game
Which GMs? Where was that published?
My own evaluation of this: White should avoid 11.Bf4? Nb4!! but 11.Nc4 Qh6 12.Bf4 g5 13.Be3 instead gives White plenty of compensation (at least in practical play).

My interest in this variation is from Black's point of view. Right now I'm hesitant to play the Black side of this.

I did some checking of 21.Nxc5+ and it (probably) wins for White. There are many defenses available for Black to analyze, but I haven't found anything sufficient.

Since kaspirateur has promised more details later of his analyses I will not give mine now.


Hi !

As I have no time to post this analysis and I would like this fascinating thread to live (among all this BDG rubbish  Wink), I would be happy to see analysis of others (where is Mr Palliser who starts a thread and does not participate to the debate ? Sad).

For me, after 21 N*c5+, it's completely winning for white and it's easy to see that Black will be a piece down in many of the lines.

Maybe we should reroute the analysis in another direction (perhaps early alternatives forBlack in Chernyshov-Grishuk game).

Thx everybody !!

Could you give a sample line after 21.Nxc5 ? I don't see it and feel very dumb now.  Embarrassed

Hi every Tromp afficionado !!!

I have to much work to analyse properly on my own so I used lazyly Fritz 8 to check the analysis and it seems to be correct.

So, White can indeed play for the win in this line beacuse taking both rooks appears suicidal.

I would like to have the latest thoughts of all our preferred GMs and IMs( Prie, Martin, Palliser...).

It also seems that the line with 9... b6 10 Rc1 ! as played in Pavlovic-Alexandrov is  murderous.

Very promising indeed !!!!

SO ?????? Wink

Hi !

in fact, after checking this week-end, 21 N*c5+ is winning for white.
As I'm supposed to be working at the moment I will post those analysis later.
The Q+N duo will coordinate to win the rook on h8 and in the end will remain Q+N (the other one on e2) against Q so 1 piece up in the endgame !!!

More details later.

Thanks again

I rather like 14.Ng3 Bg7 15.Ne3 in this line. The bishop might go to c3 instead.

So, 1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5 Ne4 3.Bf4 c5 4.f3 Qa5+ 5.c3 Nf6 6.d5 Qb6 7.e4 Qxb2 8.Nd2 Qxc3 9.Bc7 Qe3+ 10.Ne2 d6 11.Nc4 Qh6 12.Bxb8 seems to be good for a draw, but no more (which is more than most gambits can boost with, compare with another 2 pawn gambit under d-Pawn Specials section!).

However, white players will not be satisfied with that, so an alternative is 12.Rb1 with lots of compensation (perhaps even sufficient!) for the 2 pawns
e.g. 12.-,Na6 13.Ba5 g5 14.Bd2 Qg6 15.Qa4+ Nd7 16.Ng3 Bg7 17.Nf5 Bf6 18.Bd3

Yes, Kaspiratuer, Black has the 18.-,Rb7 move!

White has a draw if he wants, but can maybe play for a win:

19.Nxb7 Qxh1 20.Bxd7+ Kxd7 21.Na5+ Ke8 22.Qc7
White is a rook down but will win the Bc8 if i'm not mistaken.
One continuation showing some possibilities is
22.-,Qxh2+ 23.Ke1 Qh3 24.g4 Bxg4 25.fxg4 f6 26.Qc8+ Kf7 27.Qe6+ Ke8 28.Nb7 Qh2 29.Qc8+ Kf7 30.Nd8+ Ke8 31.e5 dxe5 32.d6 exd6 33.Nc6+ Kf7 34.Qd7+ Kg6 35.Nd8 threatening mate in two
As I don't have any chess engine available right now I won't analyze this any further (even if I had I'm not sure I would...)

I don't find anything more than a draw after 15.Rb1 Rb7 16.Qa8 Rb8
White can avoid the repetition with 17.Qc6 but I don't see any advantage for White after 17.-,Bb7 18.Qc7 bxc4 19.Rxb7 Rd8
