The line you give looks = to me. No need to give black such an easy ride.

You can play a delayed exchange variation with 6. Bxc6, or get on with the usual Lopez plan starting with 6. Re1 or 6. c3. Black is then left with a choice of transposing into a main line or trying something independant and getting even less counterplay.

Those who want to go by my perverse footsteps play such pawn structure with fuzzy atypical still strategic orientations

Does anyone have any ideas for white after:

1. e4 e5
2. Nf3 Nc6
3. Bb5 a6
4. Ba4 Nf6
5. 0-0 d6
6. ??

So far I have seen the following line:

6. d4 b5
7. dxe5 dxe5
8. QxQ NxQ
9. Bb3 Bd6

This looks alright for white, but I was wondering if black has any improvements or deviations (after 6. d4) that white would need to worry about.
