How can white play 7 Be3? He hasn't moved his d-pawn yet. [/quote]


well,well,well euuuh

 In fact it's 5.Bf7+ Ke7 6.Bb3 Rf8 7.d3 d6 8.Be3! with probably black advantage

so black should try 6.Bb3 Qe8 (or d6) 7.d3 d6 ( or Qe8) and now on 8.Be3 Qg6!? (not Bxe3?)with typical
counterplay

Afer 5 Bxf7+ Ke7 6 Bb3 black can play 6...d6, an improvement (white activates his c8 bishop a move earlier) and a trap. I leave what happens after 6 Nxf7+ Qxf8 to you.

How can white play 7 Be3? He hasn't moved his d-pawn yet.

I still think 5.Bxf7+ Ke7 6.Bc4 is the best line for white as you can drop your bishop back to e2 if need arises.

I'd like to see some analysis on 5.Nxf7 Bxf2+ 6.Kxf2 Ne4+ 7.Ke3 as it looks like walking tightropes for white.
  

If nothing else works, a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see us through.

In addition:

The Old main line 5.Bxf7+ Ke7 6.Bd5 Rf8 7.Bxc6  (or 7.0-0 d6 8.c3 Bg4 9.Qb3 Bb6! Unclear. Pinski  )  dxc6 8.d3 Ng4 9.Nh3 Nf2 10.Bg5 Kd6! is better for black (Tobi Usher )

In the line 5.Bxf7+ Ke7 6.Bb3 Rf8 7.Be3! seem to be black's big problem . White is much better and it's easy to play (in comparaison other lines).
But i think 6...Rf8 is dubious in this line and I prefer Qe8 with the idea d6 and Qg6

5.Bxf2+ Ke7 6.Bb3 and
5.Nxf7 Bxf2+ 6.Kxf2 Ne4+ 7.Ke3 seem white's most promissing lines lately

Opinions ?
