5...Qb6 is a little offbeat, but the way I play the CK Exchange it is even more of a system opening than, say, the Colle or the KIA.  Q goes to b3, KN goes to f3, QB goes to f4 or g5, QN goes to d2, castle short.  I rarely have to think before move 8 or 9, regardless of what Black does. Wink

Granted, my middlegames are a bit of an uphill slog, but I guess that's the trade off.

Ah, yes, that doesn't make much sense, does it.

I was just trying to make the point that back in the day, Bf4 used to be considered the best square for White's QB.  These days, a lot of players prefer Bg5 straight away, even if Black has done nothing to prevent Bf4.

cheers

dsanchez,

dont follow your 'some refer Bg5 to Bg5' comment.Doesnt really make sense that I can make out, sorry. bg5 where?

Bf5 - black has to be careful, due to c3, allowing Qb3. Potentially vulnerable qside.

Plenty of games in dbases on this kinda stuff anyhow for you to check.

used to be some wild and wacky stuff on Bf4, c3 etc by a guy called Rajmund Emanuel, but just checked and the site is no longer up.

Otherwise it is covered briefly by transposition in the London System book by Kovacevic and some other chap (johansen?).

neither better nor worse, just another way to play...

Is there any downside to 4.Bf4 instead of the main line 4.Bd3?  I suppose one point of 4.Bd3 at move 4 is to stake a claim to the b1-h7 diagonal, thereby limiting the good squares available to Black's QB.    If true, then one obvious attempt to exploit the move order 4.Bf4 would be 4...Bf5.

I do kind of like the idea of preempting Bf4 with ...Qc7.  The development of White's Bishop at g5 has become pretty standard, though, with some players preferring it over Bg5 even when they have a choice.

...Qc7 is given. Seems worthy.

However white on occasion plays the line with 4Bf4 which isnt covered. An unfortunate omission.
