At present i think 4....Nd4 is still quite good for black.
White will be put on the defense. 4..Bb4 seems
harder to play, and has been extensivily analysed by John Nunn.

Spanish 4 knights

After 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bb5 what is the cerdict at this point i happen to think it is a nice way to play the lopez with out knowing a lot of theory. I am seriously thinking of replacing my main line with the 4 knights variation. Are there any cons to this or is it a nice alternative. I know it is easier for black to reach equality so im looking for more of somthing like posistional defects.
